Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Checking Out a Man - #8224 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and in sports, in relationships, in business, in stressful moments, there’s a way that a guy proves he’s a man.
A Recipe for Heroes - #5867
Maybe you've tried discount Christianity. It's very popular. Of course, it's only a pale shadow of the disciple Christianity Jesus calls us to. You go to the meetings, you believe the beliefs, you give in the offerings, you sometimes read your Bible, and you pray. But it's a surface commitment, a limited commitment, a commitment that still leaves you in control.
Spare Parts - #5864
It's very clear that God isn't impressed with sacrifices that cost us nothing with the spare parts of our life that don't matter that much to us anyway. But far too many of us try to get by with what I call selective Lordship. We may sing, "I surrender all," but we live, "I surrender some." And while the Christians around us may be impressed with our spirituality, God says, "You're giving me your spare parts and you're holding on to the important things for yourself."
It's Blurry Without Your Glasses - #5851
One of the reasons we're so spiritually lame and powerless is that we mix our faith with a lot of garbage from Egypt and Canaan. So we end up seeing our faith more through our culture than seeing our culture through our faith. And there are lots of cultures people are or have been a part of, each with its own values, its own lies and its own distortions about life.
Play-Doh or Rock? - #5848
It's so good to know that you belong to Jesus; that you're going to heaven when you die. No, not just because you feel it. You know you belong to Him. You know you're going to heaven, because God says so!
Ill from Overeating - #5826
If your Christian life is mostly passive right now, it's no wonder you're spiritually bored and you're living in a false security that everything is OK. It's not. You're foundering...you're ill from overeating and under exercising. But today can be your day to get up, get busy, and start experiencing what it is to run in God's pasture, not just graze in God's pasture!
Setting the Temperature - #5820
You put Joseph in a great situation and he's the trusted person, the one who says yes to responsibility. Put him in a terrible situation, he is the same man; making things better, changing his environment, setting a positive climate. That is a thermostat. And, that's what the people around you need you to be. Grownup people, godly people, make a difference people respond to situations, not from the environment around them or the feelings that they're feeling, but from the character inside them - the Lord who's inside them!
The King Will Never Leave - #5819
Isn't it time you resigned from running your own life and opened up to the never-leaving love of Jesus Christ? If you want to begin your personal relationship with Him, would you tell Him that right now, right where you are? Tell Him you're putting all your trust in Him and His death for you on the cross.
No Such Thing As Retirement - #5809
You can retire from a career. You can retire from a company or an occupation, but you can't retire from the service of Jesus Christ! There are those who say, "Well, I've served my time. I've done my part. I'll just sit here and rest until Jesus comes for me." Listen, when you love the Lord Jesus, when you've surrendered your life to His leadership, you don't look for an opportunity to quit.
The Sweet Celebration of the Loyal Fans - #5805
God seems silent and things seem to being getting worse instead of better. Your hopes were just sealed in a tomb. Now is the moment of truth in your relationship with the man who gave His life for you. He did not abandon you when it meant the cross. Are you going to abandon Him? It's Mary Magdalene time: time to stand by Jesus, to stand firm in your commitment to Him, even when it feels like there's no reason to.
