Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pace Car In Every Race - #4147
Now our word for today from the Word of God goes back to the dawn of all human relationships and the birth of the family, and it reveals who God considers the pace car in life's races. Genesis 3:6 - "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it." Here, in this awful moment, sin and death enter the world as Adam and Eve trespass the clear boundaries of God.

Right now you may be involved in something you know is wrong - it's a compromise, it's rebellion, it's wrong. You say, "Well, it's not hurting anyone." Oh yes, it is. When Jesus' right hand man, Peter, denied him, the Bible says that Peter went out and wept bitterly over it - but only after Jesus, on His way to His trial, turns and looks straight at Peter. And suddenly Peter realized he wasn't just breaking laws. He was breaking his Savior's heart.

When you're deciding who you're going to marry, you're actually deciding who's going to shape your children, and who will in turn, shape their children with what they got from you and your spouse, and who will, in turn - well, you get the idea.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - That Life-Changing Limp - #4732
It is the ongoing pain that is God's reminder that it's always got to be God. If He's given you a painful reminder of the futility of self-reliance, the price of sin, and the glory of His work in your life, then thank Him for it. Let the "limp" that God gave you when you wrestled with Him make you strong for the rest of your life!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - You Leave or You Lose - #4735
Your life now belongs to Jesus. And because anyone who loved you enough to die for you will not do you wrong. If He's asking you to leave behind the known for the unknown, don't miss your destiny by holding on. Remember, those who never get out of the boat never know what it is to walk on water!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Stepped On But Still Precious - #4900
When you believe you're not worth much, you're insulting the One who designed you. From the moment the egg and the sperm came together to start your life, you have been God's unique creation. If you don't believe it, look at your fingerprints. There's no one else like you. But most importantly, you are infinitely valuable because God paid for you with the life of His Son!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pilot Strike Mess - #5014
Behind so many rebellious children, behind so many resentful or dominant or negative women is a man who is not being a man. Not some chest-beating tyrant, but a real man like Jesus: taking moral leadership, involving God in every aspect of the family's life, being tender when it's time to be tender and firm when it's time to be firm, showing love and compassion and mercy, leading his family to God - to His love and His answers.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Pieces and Masterpieces - #5042
See, God is the original and the ultimate recycler. He can take the trash of your life and recycle it into treasure. You have to bring Jesus what is broken, and then He makes those pieces into masterpieces. How does He do that? He'll do it with His power, if you will do your part in the recycling process.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Futility of Running Away - #5096
He died in your place to pay for the sins that you would otherwise have to pay for eternally. And now He's pursued you to wherever you are today. You can walk away or run away again, I suppose, but He'll keep pursuing you to rescue you until the day you run out of time. Some day will be your last day to get ready for God before you meet God. But for now, His arms are open, inviting you to come home to the One you were made for.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unappreciated Beauty - #5105
To put it simply, you did the sinning, but Jesus did the dying for it so you could cross the awful sin-canyon between you and God and experience the love you were made for. And the One who gave you your worth. Suddenly, with Him in your heart, you know who you are - someone worth so much to God that He made you in His image and paid for you with His blood.
