Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - When You Are Doubting Thomas - #8243 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
When we moved in my senior year, I lost my Christian cocoon. I’d had a good youth group, a Bible club, a lot of Christians. And then, man, I had none of the above. I was like the “Lone Christian.” And I was in this one class where the teacher challenged everything I believed, and now I was questioning things that I never really questioned before. What if we’d been raised in another culture? Would I have believed something else? Well, I really started digging into the evidence for myself, and I’ll tell you today the things I struggled with are the things I know are true beyond any shadow of a doubt.
Mountain in the Bible: Matthew 17:20
There is no limit to the power of God that is worked through faith. Jesus says that even the smallest amount of faith is enough to "move mountains"--to achieve what from any normal human perspective is impossible.
The Days of The King - #5905
There are all the other compartments: how you treat people, how you spend your money, what you do on a date, what you watch, what you listen to, how you run your business, your social life, your finances. Wait a minute! What are you doing running all that anyway? Jesus paid everything He had for your life. He's not interested in a compartment! He paid the whole price; He should have the whole thing!
How to Open a Closed Door - #5904
Somewhere in your life there seems to be a closed door standing between you and something God wants you to do. You've been waiting for God to do something. Well, He's been waiting for you to do something: to start walking in the direction of where you believe He wants you to go, even if there's a closed door or a flooded river in front of you. See, that's His problem. Your problem is to get moving in the direction He's leading!
Faith is the substance - a Christian perspective
Faith is choosing to believe in something out of hope, rather than scientific certainty. Throughout the Bible, God values and rewards "childlike" faith.
The Strongest Nails in the World - #5802
My guess is that you know about Jesus dying on the cross. You know He died there to pay for our sins. But you somehow may have missed that life-changing moment when, in your heart, you walk up to that cross and say those words, "For me, Jesus. What You did there is for me."
What's So Amazing About Amazing Grace - #5773
Maybe you're still "lost," like the song says, but you're ready to be "found." You've been "blind," but you want to "see." Then it's time to let God's undeserved love - His amazing grace - happen to you. It's time to reach out to Jesus and grab Him like a drowning person would grab a rescuer. He's your only hope.
Out Of Service - #5757
It may be that you've worked hard for the Lord over the years and you've done many of the jobs there are to do and you're tired. But now you're saying, "I served my time." The truth is we don't have enough time to serve the Lord who gave everything for us. We've only got maybe 70 or 80 years! That's not near enough! There's too much to do. There are too few to do it. Please don't hang out an "Out Of Service" sign!
The Name on the Gift - #5729
I can't think of anything more exciting for you this Christmas than to look at the gift and realize that it's got your name on it. The gift God sent Jesus to give you, that is. It could be that He's been standing there in front of you, offering you this greatest gift of all for a long time. But you've never really realized that it had your name on it. You've never reached out and received it. It's time.
Works in the Bible: Ephesians 2:8-10
Good works are an important part of following Christ--they are tangible outgrowths of our faith. But good works by themselves are not enough to save us; salvation must come through faith. This passage forms the basis of the belief that we are "saved by grace alone, through faith."
