Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Best Seats in the House - #4475
Those who have suffered painfully, those who have been hurt deeply, they are the people who have - or can have - a view of the awesomeness of God that others never see. And if you are going through a long, dark valley right now, there's hope here for you in seeing beyond the hurt to what can happen if you let your big need open you up to a big God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Sunsets Should Be Beautiful - #4492
Yes, our later years can have their share of physical pain, disappointed dreams, financial strain, grievous losses, frustrating limitations, and even hurtful neglect. We can't choose our circumstances, but we can, whatever our age, choose our attitude. We can choose what kind of climate we're going to bring with us wherever we are: selfish or unselfish, gentle or harsh, praising or griping, critical or encouraging.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Beacon from the Graveyard - #4500
Jesus blew the doors off His grave and walked out under His own power, leaving death - man's ultimate enemy - vanquished and powerless. And that Easter morning, the beacons were lit. From the mountaintop of that generation, the message that Jesus is alive and death has lost has ignited a fire on the mountain of the next generation. And today, twenty centuries later, we are the ones left here by Jesus to light the beacon for our generation.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Final Payment - #4429
According to the Bible, there is still one more bill to pay after the funeral - it's the payment for all those me-first life choices that the Bible calls "sin." In God's words, "Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). The payment for running our own lives is an eternal payment. But like that final payment for your funeral expenses, you can do something now to take care of that awful obligation once and for all.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Wounded But Still Fighting - #4301
If you've taken some hits lately - you're hurt, you're knocked down, you're wounded - then the stirring testimony of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4, beginning with verse 7, should be an encouragement and a challenge to you. It's our word for today from the Word of God. It comes from one who has been wounded over and over again, and who refuses to stop fighting for Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Fog Cannot Win - #4316
The fog never really stands a chance - it's no match for the inevitable victory of the sun - in a majestic mountain landscape, or in the dark moments of your life and mine. And it could be that you're in one of those seasons right now. It's been a time of loss, of grief, of doubt and confusion, of a prodigal loved one, of no answers. Maybe you've been walking through a fog where evil seems to be winning; where injustice seems to be prevailing. The fog has rolled into your life and obscured things you were once so sure of. It's covered the joy you once had with a sense of sadness and fear and even thoughts of giving up.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Glory of Rainy Days - #4583
The more it rains in your life, the greener you get spiritually, the more alive. That's what rain does, that's what pain does, and that's what suffering does. It's the greening of us. You might need to know that right now because, man, is it raining in your life. You're going through a very long, very stormy time, and maybe it's been a while since you've seen the sun.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Night Blooming - #4640
There's a new beauty in Him that comes only through the night. Your pain has given you a new tenderness and a new compassion. You have a deep peace that is known only by those who have walked through the valley with Jesus. And there is this unexplainable radiance of one who has been tapping into the central power of God to make it through each new day.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Something Broken at Christmas - #4685
Sin killed Jesus. He absorbed our death penalty for our sin to remove the wall between us and the God whose love we need so much. And the broken things in your life are a painful reminder of your deep heart need for a love and a security that you can't lose. Only God can give you that.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How Your Life - and Your Death - Can Really Count - #4742
If you haven't lived to show Christ to people, your death really can't lift Him up. The death of a man or a woman who has really lived passionately for Christ can have such incredible meaning - helping others be in heaven with you. But a life not lived for Christ just can't have that kind of meaning. Death destroys every reason for living but one - living for Jesus and what matters to Him.
