Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Don't Wait Till it's All Gone! - #5653
Is there a relationship in your life that needs some attention? Jesus says to get to that first. It means facing your mistakes, facing your neglect, maybe your conflicts. It may mean apologizing, maybe forgiving. Reaching out with love they can feel, making time for someone you love but you've been too busy for.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Radical Christmas Victory Plan - #4421
Now try to get your mind around this: the helpless hands of that little Jewish baby Mary was holding in the manger were the hands that created the galaxies! The Son of God, the second Person of the Godhead, the One of whom the Bible says, "Through Him all things were made" (John 1:3) - comes to our planet in a helpless little package that basically can do nothing for Himself. Omnipotence becomes helplessness to rescue a world full of dying people. As one song says, "What a strange way to save the world."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Only Hope of Making it Out - #3919
I wasn't at the World Trade Center that awful day. But I understand a little of how my friend feels about those rescuers - because I know someone who gave His life so I didn't have to die. I owe my life to Him.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Too Much to Carry - #4497
He's asking you to come alongside one of His servants for whom you will be one glorious answer to prayer. God stands ready to take the same kind of Holy Spirit empowerment that He's given you and plant that anointing in the lives of others. But you have to be willing to let go, and they have to be willing to step up. And the work of God will then take off where you are as never before - without anyone being crushed by the load.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The No-Regrets Alarm - #4535
Now the day you put your trust in Jesus as Savior, God planted in your soul a sin alarm. Somebody planted a gluttony alarm in our refrigerator. There's this noise that makes you stop and think before you reach for something. It's annoying, but that pig can keep you from doing something you will regret later - like tomorrow on the scale! Now we need some noise inside of us when we are about to reach for something that we are going to later regret. And God delivers us from evil if we will listen to the inner alarms He triggers when we are about to sin.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Charlie Brown Christmas Miracle - #4422
It's amazing how a broken tree can become special with some tender, loving care. Or, more importantly, a broken person. With all the joy of the Christmas season, it can also be a time that reopens a lot of old wounds - a time that intensifies your loneliness and highlights the broken parts of your life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - It Really Is "How You Play The Game" - #4406
Well, at least on God's team. That's why Jesus' finish line commendation for His players will be, "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21), not "Well done, good and successful servant." What God cares about - what God rewards - is an all-out effort. The results are in His hands. The effort is in yours.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Open Door on the Storm Cellar - #4341
Now that's how every church and Christian fellowship should be -- a storm cellar with the door wide open for all to enter! Sadly, too many churches turn out to be a place where you find more storms, but it's meant to be the safest place in town.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Powerful Person In The Room - #4355
Well, okay, the server's name was officially Jesús. But his unselfish, "What can I do for you?" spirit, offered by a man with Jesus' name, said a lot to my friends. I don't know what his relationship is with Jesus, but he understands how one who bears His name should live.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Nothing to Hide - #4360
Our word for today from the Word of God comes from Romans 13 beginning at verse 12, and it encourages us to live with those three words as our life motto. Nothing to hide.
