Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Recipe For Heroes - #4117
When I read Captain Lewis' invitation to Captain Clark, I couldn't help but think how much it reminds me of the much greater invitation that Jesus Christ gives to you and me. It is not an invitation to a party or vacation - it's an invitation to join Him in a bold adventure, filled with "dangers, difficulties, and fatigues." Oh yes, and the "honor and the rewards."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When The Wrong Thing Feels Right - #4120
Trust your feelings and what you can see - or trust the One who's got the big picture. That's the kind of choice that you, as a follower of Jesus Christ, face over and over again. Because your feelings often lie to you and what you can see is so limited, it can lead you the wrong way. You probably know that from experience - too much experience.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Risking Everything On A Promise - #4143
As Mike told me about that potentially costly act of integrity, he referred to a Biblical promise he was counting on that day. It's our word for today from the Word of God, 1 Samuel 2:30. "Those who honor Me I will honor." Well, they honored God that day, and God wonderfully honored them as a result. Now God's honoring doesn't always happen that immediately, or always in the way we would script it, but He always keeps that promise.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Lighting Up the Night - #5632
If you're the positive, uncomplaining person in an environment of negativity, you will be light in a dark place. God says here not to argue. If you're the peaceable person in a setting where there's anger and conflict, you will illuminate that night sky.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Dedicated Line - #4182
Now, in those days, it was probably the difference between what held your garbage and what held your gold. Paul was talking about dedicated vessels, dedicated tools. Dedicated as in reserved for special use, for special purposes like a dedicated line.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never Forgetting the Cost - #4196
There's a man who tried to live his life here in light of what was sacrificed for him. I understand that. I hope you do.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Vacancy - #4946
One day you will, in a sense, be knocking on the door of heaven, and if you have never opened your heart to Jesus to become your own Savior from your own sin, well, "no vacancy" there for those who had "no vacancy" for Him here.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Narrow Banks - #4954
We add new arenas without removing any old ones. Homework competes with extracurricular commitments, household responsibilities, youth meetings, friends. A business person says "yes" until his or her resume' looks impressive, but their contributions in each area are insignificant. An overcommitted woman needs a valet just to manage all her hats: wife, mother, committee worker, volunteer, career person, creator, entertainer. By taking on more than we can possibly do well, we live in direct violation of God's command to "make it your ambition to lead a quiet life."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Secret of a Champion - #4973
If you want to be a spiritual champion, you'll need to make your personal time with Jesus in His Book the singular non-negotiable of your personal schedule. Not something you do if there's time or when you feel like it. You show up for training time with Jesus each new day. The purpose of reading His Word is to chew on it until you're ready to "do everything written" there.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Followers With Footnotes - #4992
Suddenly, you're giving the Lord a contract with certain requirements - living in certain conditions, being near your family, keeping your position or some prized possessions, keeping a special person in your life, being comfortable. You're saying, "Yes, Lord, but..." Added conditions. The word "but" cannot follow the word "Lord."
