The Race To Save Lives - #3733
Every day they live without Christ, they move one step closer to an eternity without Him. But you're there. And you have the serum. You have nothing more important to do with the rest of your life than to deliver life to those who will die if you don't.

With Your Back To The Sun - #2812
If you wanted to draw that in picture form, you'd put you on the left side of the page and God on the right and you would be walking away from Him, with your back to Him to the source of the love and the peace and the power you desperately need. If you die with your back still to Him, erase God from the picture forever. And that's hell. Unless you can find a way to get rid of your sin and get back to Him, like the space station without the sun, the result is ultimately death.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - When Life's a Broken Vending Machine - #8275 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I’m working in my hotel room. I want a soft drink to keep me going. I go down the hall to the vending machine and put in the four quarters—nothing happens. The coin return doesn’t work. I have a choice: forget that vending machine or just keep putting more money into it until I get what I’m after. This is not a hard choice. ... I’m Ron Hutchcraft. And ironically, life offers us many “vending machine” choices. I invest myself in something I think will meet my need: a relationship, an accomplishment, a career, even religion or spirituality.

Hitting People With Your Baggage - #2711
Maybe you're carrying a load of stress, or hurt, or frustration, or anger, or worry. It could be that the pain of your past keeps weighing you down. But the problem is that your baggage is hurting other people - who probably don't deserve it!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - A Sheepish Easter - #8241 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
My Dad’s in heaven, but I know there are moments he must be looking down and laughing at his city boy son doing country boy things. Like helping a friend carry some lambs. I never did that before. As soon as I got each lamb in my arms, he just went like totally limp, like he had just surrendered to his fate. Made me think of another Lamb who’s come to mean the world to me.

The Trouble with the Top of the Mountain - #5895
We're restless and we're searching because we're away from the One we were made for, and that is why Jesus came to die on a cross to absorb the eternal death penalty for every sin we've ever done. So to find forgiveness, to find peace, to find the only love that can truly satisfy your heart, you have to climb one more hill. It's that hill where Jesus died for you.

The Cleanup Imperative - #5894
God is not impressed with your abilities, with your great résumé, with your connections, your education, or your credentials. He doesn't care about your cash. He doesn't care about your charisma. All He cares about is your character! He is looking for clean! Getting rid of the dirt, staying clean, that is how you qualify to be an instrument in the hands of Almighty God.

Go When the Gate Is Open - #5882
The Lord may not always be able to be found. He won't always be near. That's why you have to come to Him while He is. The gate to get to God could not be clearer. It's not a religion - no religion including Christian religion. It's a person. Jesus said, "I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved."

Rudderless - #5840
We were created in such a way that our life can only make sense when the One who created us is running it. But we've taken command instead, happy to let God run the universe, but unwilling to let Him run us. So we're drifting, sometimes even shipwrecked. Away from the only person who has the plan for our life. We are, to use the Bible's word for it, "lost."

Deep Holes, Beautiful Discoveries - #5835
When things collapse you can see the faithfulness and love and power of your Lord in ways that we can only see when we're desperate and beyond what we can fix, what we can handle. This season when things are caving in can be a season of life-changing discovery, as well. You can't make the hole in your life go away, but you can go through it to discover beauty that you could never see any other way.
