Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Things We're Ashamed Of - #8022
You know, it’s hard to shake the shame for the things that we’ve done that we thought we would never do; the things we wish we hadn’t done.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Haunted By the Roles We Play - #8037
You know, some have played the role of a joker, concealing the hurt, a broken heart, the saint maybe, of covering up dark secrets that are anything but saintly. Or maybe you’ve played the user of people, or maybe you’ve been the volcano whose left lasting damage from your blowups, or the unfaithful who’s violated your marriage covenant. It’s hard to live a life that matters when you’re haunted by the roles you’ve played; there’s just too much baggage.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Declaring Your Independence - 8047

He does not want to hear a recitation of the same tired old prayer script that we often repeat without thinking. He insists that we come as we really are - completely unmasked. The real God can only help the real you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Every Word Recorded - #5450
God, who’s the great Judge of all mankind, has a record of everything you or I have ever said. And those words will be enough to indict us when we stand before Him. It's a frightening prospect to think that we’ll be held accountable for so many things we've said throughout our life.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Game of the King - #5489
As I stood there, I realized I was standing on the very stones where my Savior was humiliated in front of a howling mob and by some brutal Roman soldiers. Our guide showed us some markings that were scratched into the stones by Roman soldiers at that time. The guide explained that those markings made a crude playing board for this cruel game the soldiers played.
