Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Trouble With Life's Great Catches - #4766
We've tried to fill a God-sized hole with things and people that can't begin to take His place. If we live like this, we'll live without peace and without meaning. If we die like this, we'll spend eternity without God and His love. Thank God, He didn't leave us separated from Him. He pursued us. He sent His Son, Jesus, to sacrifice His life for yours and mine - to take the rap for all our sin, that defiant self-rule of our lives.

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 - Surrounded by Precious - #4140
There's a song the children love to sing - I did, too, when I was one of those Sunday School kids. "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." They're all precious to Him - people of every color, every background, every I.Q., every nationality, every age. And they had better all be precious to us.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Accelerators Without Brakes - #4153
Jesus is, of course, referring to God's command to have a weekly sabbath - a day that is "for the Lord your God," according to the Ten Commandments. "On it you shall not do any work." (Exodus 20:10) Now, I know some Christians debate which day should be the Sabbath; please don't send me letters and booklets and verses about that - a lot of folks already have! What I'm talking about here is the Sabbath principle - that God has built into our creation a regular time for rest, for recovery, for spiritual renewal. In fact, it is important enough that God made it the focus of one of His Ten Commandments!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Harvest of Doing Good - #4166
Mark is reaping the good work he did many years ago - now he's enjoying the benefits of those efforts. It's a reminder of one of the wisest laws in the Bible - "Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap." (Galatians 6:7) We usually think about that in terms of the bad consequences of the bad seed we sow. But there's another side to that reaping equation.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Close to the Trail, But Lost - #4865
It's possible to be close to the trail and still be lost - in the great outdoors or in your search for God. And without a rescuer, you will never make it home - to God, to heaven.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Winning Costs Too Much
Just as a missile's internal guidance system decides where it goes, so integrity always sets the course of the man or woman of God. When you decide you'll always take the high road, no matter what, it pre-makes a thousand life decisions. And it means that when you cross your finish line, you'll be able to say those two winning words - "No regrets."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Looking for the Opening - #4952
Now in your life, there is probably someone you would like to get to Jesus; someone who needs what only the Savior can do for them - someone you want to take to heaven with you. The stakes are a lot higher than any football game - they are eternal. They are life-and-death. But like a player trying to get to the goal, you have to be determined to find an opening - to look for some natural opportunity to bring up Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - In a Position to Save a Life - #4972
As you think about the people at work today, at school, in your neighborhood, in your family or the place you shop or recreate - among those people must be those who have probably never been to the cross of Jesus to have their sins forgiven. The only One who can forgive their sins is the One who died to pay for them. And if they die with their sins unforgiven, they have no chance of getting into God's heaven. You know that. You know Christ. You know them - which means you're responsible.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Password for Heaven - #4975
When Jesus died on the cross, He was dying so you don't have to. And the day He walked out of His grave, He proved He's got the power to turn your death sentence into eternal life.
