Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Feeling Dirty, Getting Clean - #5071
Just think of Jesus absorbing all the guilt, and the shame, and the hell of every angry thing you've ever done; every dirty thing, every selfish thing, every deceitful thing, every hurting thing. That's how much He loves you. That's how much He wants to forgive you so you can have the unspeakable joy of being clean and the guarantee of being with Him in His heaven forever.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Preparing for the Worst - #5074
Whatever the burden, God will match it with His grace. More than match it, if you'll go to His throne of grace to get it. You have to go for the grace that this moment requires.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Washing in Water That Cannot Make You Clean - #5081
All of us have things we wish we hadn't done and things we know we should have done. We feel the guilt and the shame of things that we thought we'd never do; of things we've done that have hurt other people. You might say, we know we're dirty inside and that we'd better do something to get clean before we meet the Creator who decides our forever.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Loneliest "Lonely" of All - #5091
It would be cheap for me to say, "I know how you feel." I probably don't. But I know someone who does - who really does. That would be Jesus. In fact, no one on earth has ever experienced the depth of loneliness He went through. And that's one of the reasons you can trust Him in a way that you can trust no one else in your life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Fugitive in the Mirror - #5180
You'll never get anywhere with God as long as you're trying to stand before Him trying to look all religious and righteous. We're filthy, according to Him. That's what our sin makes us. But because Jesus loved you enough to take all the guilt and all the hell of all your sins and pay for it on the cross, He can literally take away all the guilt, take away all the penalty of all your sin.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Debt-Free - #5196
This very day you can experience the incredible joy of knowing that you are forever free from the weight of your sin; the joy of a brand new beginning. What Jesus did on His cross removes your sin when you tell Jesus you're putting all your trust in Him to forgive you and to take you to heaven when you die. You will never have to face the judgment you deserve because Jesus faced the judgment you deserve.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - I Think I Can't - #5199
In a strange way, "I think I can't" turns out to be much more powerful than "I think I can." You start to understand that as you bring your life under the leadership of the Lord, Jesus Christ. And you begin to understand the powerful things that can happen when you are finally ready to say to God, "I think I can't, and only You can!"
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Do-Overs - #5200
All the wrong things we've done carry an eternal death penalty. The Bible calls it hell. They cannot be erased. Our damning personal record cannot be removed unless that penalty is paid, and someone has to die for your sins to be paid for. And someone did - the only One who could. The only One who didn't have any sin of His own to pay for - Jesus.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Rewinding Your Fall - #4023
Our grandson is definitely a child of the VCR Age – when he has a bad fall, he wants to rewind to before the fall. Well, so do some of us. We’ve had some falls – spiritually, morally – and we wish we could rewind and do it over. Obviously, we can’t. But, in a way, God does offer us an opportunity to rewind our falls to get back to where we were before we fell.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Healing Edge - #4032
There's this infection that every human being on this planet is fighting - it's actually a spiritual infection. This spiritual cancer is called "sin" in the Bible - and it can kill your future, your reputation, your marriage, your joy, your closeness to God. And, if it isn't cured, it can ultimately kill you forever by keeping you out of God's heaven.
