Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Embarrassing Endorsements - #8254 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
They call them celebrity endorsements. You know, I see some athlete or celebrity in a commercial, using some product, and I’m supposed to think, “Hey, I like that guy. So I guess I’ll use their product.” Athletes, for example, can make major bucks from these endorsements. Here’s where the problem comes in. What if the guy you’ve associated with your product is suddenly associated with some not-so-nice behavior; like the Olympic star eating a certain cereal who was also allegedly photographed using marijuana? Oops! Or the singer with the chewing gum in his hand who suddenly is accused of not treating his girlfriend very well? Oops! That’s when endorsement turns to like embarrassment.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - The Chief and the Thief - #8247 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
He was known as one of the most respected Indian chiefs of his time; he had this unblemished reputation for being totally loving toward his people, but also totally just when it came to judging those who did wrong. He was troubled that someone from their village had been stealing pelts from his people. He let it be known that the thief would be tied to a stake in the middle of the village when the sun was high and beaten with twenty lashes of the whip. And then he set a trap to catch the thief.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Why Death Is Not Scary Anymore - #8245 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - When You Are Doubting Thomas - #8243 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
When we moved in my senior year, I lost my Christian cocoon. I’d had a good youth group, a Bible club, a lot of Christians. And then, man, I had none of the above. I was like the “Lone Christian.” And I was in this one class where the teacher challenged everything I believed, and now I was questioning things that I never really questioned before. What if we’d been raised in another culture? Would I have believed something else? Well, I really started digging into the evidence for myself, and I’ll tell you today the things I struggled with are the things I know are true beyond any shadow of a doubt.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Racing the Night - #8238 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
For centuries, people had to live by the sun. Sun up, work like crazy to get things done while you can; sun down, sleep so you can wake up with the sun. Along came the electric light bulb—lit up the night. Not long ago, we had a taste of the old days. The storm knocked out our power and suddenly left us on sort of a survival basis. And when it got dark, it got dark. I learned that I had to divide my work into two categories: things you have to do while there’s light and things you can do when darkness closes in. Come about 4:30 in the afternoon, I got this real strong sense of urgency. Time’s running out, boy, work while you can.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - The Magnet Inside You - #8232 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I couldn't resist buying these two little stuffed bears for my wife for Valentine's Day. You hit the on button and they are drawn to each other with puckered lips and they kiss. Now, there’s a reason they can’t help being attracted to each other; they’ve got magnets inside. So do you. ... I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and if you have an active relationship with Jesus Christ, you have a magnet inside you, whether you realize it or not.
Sweat in the Bible - a Christian perspective
As his betrayal and execution approached, Jesus knew what was in store for him. He prayed so intently that his sweat beaded up like drops of blood.
Cherish in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Jesus' love for his church is compared to our love for our own bodies. We take good care of our bodies; Jesus takes good care of his church, which is in a sense his "body" on earth.
I and my Father are one - a Christian perspective
In one of the most clear statements of his divinity, Jesus claims in this passage that he is one with God the Father.
