Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Container Lies to You - #4201
The container promised me one thing - but what was inside was very different. That's an experience every one of us has had - when we reached for something based on what it was supposed to give us, only to be disappointed when we found out what was really inside. That deception is, in fact, the very nature of sin, and it's why we end up with scars and messes we never knew were going to be a part of.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Frozen Assets - #4212
That's the problem Jesus has with many of us. He's entrusted some of His assets to us - everything we have is from Him. He expects that we'll be investing His assets in the interests of His kingdom. Unfortunately, His assets are frozen - and we froze them. Some of us have most of Christ's resources all tied up in our own kingdom. It's that kind of thing that caused God to ask in Malachi 3:8, "Will a man rob God?" Well, unfortunately, yes.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Dangerous Place in The World - #4214
That desperate man, and millions like him, placed their security in an institution. An institution that seemed safe but that ultimately failed them. A lot of church folks are making that mistake today - placing their eternal security in their church; in believing its beliefs, attending its meetings, even taking church leadership. Sadly, none of that is enough to get your sins forgiven or get you into God's heaven.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Real Christmas People - #4681
Maybe even in these countdown days to Christmas, you can pray for God to open up some amazing opportunities to tell someone about Him - why He came, why He died, and what He does when we open our life to Him.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Escape Artists - #4703
Because God knows your limits, He says, "stop!" when it's a sinful opportunity you can't handle. There simply is no such thing as an irresistible temptation. If you can't walk away from it, God won't let it in your life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Person Behind the Words - #4706
When you go through a day without time in God's Word, it's not the Bible you're leaving there - it's Jesus. The Bible doesn't care if you show up. Jesus does. That's why you need to make your time with Him and His Word, the highest priority of your personal schedule - the sun around which all the other planets of your day must revolve.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Name that Says it All - #4714
Unless and until you abandon all other hopes and cling completely to God's Rescuer, Jesus, you are headed for hell's eternal punishment. But Jesus already took your punishment when He gave His life for you on the cross. What you have to do is reach out in faith and take for yourself what He did for you there.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Church Talk - #4715
When you share with someone the life-saving information you have about Jesus, are you translating it into everyday, non-religious words they can understand, or just transmitting the message in words that may keep them from understanding the most important news of all.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Grabbing Your Only Hope - #4239
What I did that day with that rescuer is exactly what I did the day I gave myself to Jesus Christ - and what I've been doing ever since. It is, in fact, the only way God has provided for us to ever have a relationship with Him - to ever have the sins of our lifetime forgiven and to be able to go to heaven instead of hell when we die.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Life-Changing Heart Surgery - #4246
Now, while medical history records that the first heart transplant was performed by Dr. Barnard in the 1960s, real heart transplants were actually pioneered millennia ago - by the Master Heart Surgeon. And this miraculous procedure is more life changing than any medical procedure could ever be.
