Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How Nice People Miss Heaven - #4810
God's standards are to show us how much we need Jesus. Think of the cumulative effect of all the times in your life that you've told less than the truth - you broke the commandment about bearing false witness; all the times you did less than honor your parents - you blew off the commandment to honor your father and mother. Think about all the times you've had lustful thoughts. Jesus said when we do, we mentally violate the commandment against "committing adultery."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Ready or Not, Here He Comes - #4821
He'll be coming for you, one way or another, and then it's too late to get ready. The time to do that is now. Putting it off means risking your eternity. Opening your heart to Jesus means you are ready for eternity, whenever it comes.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Life-or-Death Verb - #4830
Jesus is the only Rescuer; the only Savior that can keep you from dying spiritually because He died on the cross to bear all the guilt and the penalty of the sins that you've committed. That's how much He loves you. But you have to "believe in the Lord Jesus" if you're going to be saved.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Caught Unprepared - #4114
The Bible tells us that many people are going to respond the same way when Jesus comes back. They won't be ready, and they're going to say, "I didn't expect You to come this soon." Or maybe, "I didn't expect You at all." I hope that won't be you.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Myth of "Plenty of Time" - #4129
If your life is like mine, it is full of things to do, places to go, goals to achieve. With all that I've got going, the thought of the dash just suddenly ending is hard to imagine. And yet we don't dare forget how short our dash really is, or we may miss the only things that will matter when our dash on earth is over.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Worth More Than You Can Imagine - #4132
Now, it's one thing to undervalue a baseball card and let it go for cheap. It's another thing for a person to undervalue himself or herself and let themselves go for cheap. Maybe it's a mistake you've been making. You don't understand how much you're worth - and you've been making hurtful choices because of it.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Today's Battles, Yesterday's Weapons - #4133
Robert E. Lee, the great general that he was, made the fatal mistake of fighting today's battles with what used to work. A lot of us are still making that fatal mistake - when it comes to fighting the battle for which Jesus gave His life - turning people from the death penalty of their sin to the eternal life that only Jesus can give them. When we lose that battle, a soul is lost - forever.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Clever Disguise - #4141
This strategy of sending someone who lives where the unreached people live is at least 2,000 years old. In our word for today from the Word of God in John chapter 4, Jesus is on a mission to reach the people of Samaria. So, how does He go about it? He reaches one of their own - the woman at the well, who is notorious in her village for her promiscuity.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - One Hand Short of Heaven - #4840
You can't hold Jesus with one hand and some junk He died for in the other. Believing in Jesus is grabbing Him with both hands, turning from, abandoning whatever else has been your hope. Could it be you've tried to turn to Jesus without turning from your sin, your other hope? It's got to be a two-hand faith, grabbing Jesus with all your heart and both your hands.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Only An Interruption - #4145
Life's partings are tough, especially when someone we love slips into eternity. Death just rips us up inside, and the grief is sometimes almost unbearable. But because of Jesus, it's almost unbearable. Why? Because if we belong to Jesus, and our loved one did, then this is not the termination of our relationship. It is - because of Christ - only an interruption.
