Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Dangerous Role of All - #5015
It takes honesty to admit that you don't really have Jesus, but the cost of continuing to just play the role is way too high to pay; too awful to pay.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Nothing's Happening - #5028
God is so often the God of the eleventh hour. He waits until the moment when everyone will know it had to be Him. He waits so our faith can stretch farther than its ever stretched before so He can do greater things for us than He's ever done before.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You Feel Like Giving Up - #5063
Fix the leaks that could sink you, focus on the Lord who brought you this far, and fight for the lives that need for you to finish what you've started. Jesus didn't bring you this far so you could quit. He's counting on you, not just to start this race, but to finish your race as He did for you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Dream Boss - #5083
Your work is going to be for the approval of Jesus, looking past your human boss right over his or her shoulder and seeing Jesus there. So that means if you're cooking french fries, you're going to say, "I'm going to be the best french fry cooker they ever had." I'm going to be the best algebra student this algebra teacher has ever seen. Whether I get the best grades or not, I'm going to work as hard as anybody they ever saw. I'm going to be the best shipping clerk, or checkout person, or vice president, or teacher they've ever seen. You'll be known as their hardest worker; one who's on time, who keeps their commitments, who doesn't cut corners, who finishes what they start, who goes the extra mile.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Tripper Upper - #5092
Maybe the humor that you use is contradicting the purity that you say Jesus stands for. Maybe your sarcasm is a little hard to reconcile with the compassion of Jesus. Maybe your gossip and your backstabbing is confusing people. Maybe it's the fact that you tend to be so negative. Maybe it's your laziness at school, or your complaining attitude, or your laziness at work. You know, a Christian ought to be the best employee that an employer's got, so that they give credit to the name of Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - It's Show Time! - #5123
God is preparing you for bigger things; for opportunities to impact many lives. That's the reason for the things you're going through right now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never Off Duty - #5144
That actually is the mindset of someone who's concerned about saving lives. You're not always rescuing, but you're never "off duty" when it's time for a rescue. That is a powerful picture of a follower of Jesus Christ whose life is truly available for Christ's service. You never go "off duty." Not when lives are at stake.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Nailing Your Colors - #5159
We all know the temptation to get by or to get ahead by covering up our relationship with Jesus. And when the world starts to like us and we start to like the world, it's often at the expense of the One who wouldn't deny us even when it meant a cross. We forget whose we are. But maybe those days of surrendering your Jesus-identity are almost over. Maybe you're ready to stand publicly for the One who died publicly for you. It all begins when you decide that you will not lower your Jesus-colors for anyone, for anything.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Improve Your Man - #5163
If you want to improve your man, bring him good, bring him value. Tell him what's good about him. Praise him when he does something right, even if it's just a small improvement. Give him a fish if you want him to do it some more. Or, as my wife often says, "Water what you want to grow."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Trust Is Lost - #4002
That's what happened when all the questions about an accounting firm's integrity arose - trust was lost. And when trust is lost, sometimes all is lost. Not just for companies, but for individuals, too. That's why it's so important that you and I make integrity and honesty our non-negotiable bottom line in everything we do or say.
