Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Incredibles - #4892
Your heart's telling you that there's got to be more. And there is - much more. Don't settle for ordinary anymore! Lay down "business as usual" and tell Jesus you're ready to step up to what He made you for, what He saved you for!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Wound Not Treated - #4898
It may be your husband who's wounded you or your wife, a parent, or maybe a child. It could be a Christian leader, a fellow believer, a coworker, a friend. And you've let that wound go untended. The infection is spreading. Left untreated longer, it may spread so far that it could destroy a marriage, a family, a church, a ministry, and even the reputation of Jesus to the people who are watching it all happen. You just can't let it go any longer. It's going to do more damage than you'll be able to heal.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Important Appointment You Have Today - #4899
Maybe your time with Jesus has been on a "whenever I can fit it in" basis. That's Jesus you're talking about! He deserves better and you and I are a mess when we neglect our time with Him. He brings out the best in you. Neglect being with Him and the worst of you starts coming out again. It's time to make your daily meeting with Jesus the number one non-negotiable of your personal schedule.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Power of One Lonely Light - #4902
Maybe you're in a place where dishonesty seems to be the norm, or talking dirty, or talking trash against other people. Where sin is a laughing matter and a way of life people don't even give much thought to. And then there's you. You're the living proof that there's another way to be; that there's hope, not just despair. There's integrity, not just deceit. There's looking out for others, not just looking out for yourself. You're the light.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - High Yield Investing - #4903
Jesus gives each of us an amazing opportunity - to, in essence, buy a share of the harvest before it comes in, and to enjoy the fruits of the harvest with Him for all eternity. He literally offers us the chance to take what we have and make it into something eternal; to actually eternalize it by investing it in the very work of God on this planet.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Burdens That Could Crush You - #4904
If you belong to Jesus Christ, you have a God who does for you what that driver did for those horses. He holds back the load you could not bear. Now you may be carrying a very heavy load right now - and you may even be wondering about the accuracy of what I said. Be assured that He knows how much weight will make you stronger - and He'll allow that much in your life. But He also knows when it's weight that would crush you - and that's when He puts on the brakes.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Not Just at Christmas - #4943
A lot of us think of Him mainly on Sunday at church. But He didn't come to be our holiday Jesus or our church Jesus. He came here to make possible a personal love relationship with Him that gives meaning to every day of our lives; not just to be a belief or a religious compartment in our lives.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Lights Go On - #4944
When you open up your life to Jesus, the wall between you and God comes down and you begin to understand the reason He put you here. He lights up a road that has been so dark before. What seemed so meaningless suddenly is illuminated with His eternal purpose.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Those Christmas Magic Words - #4945
Your sin is just too serious for any amount of religion to erase. It took Jesus pouring out His life on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sin to rescue you. He becomes your Savior when you grab Him like those hurricane victims grabbed their rescuer.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Bad News About Being Religious - #4955
That's the problem with some of us church folks - we're actually counting on our Christianity, our church attendance, our religiousness, our spiritual track record as the thing that will make us right with God. But none of that can do it. That's why Jesus came. Your sins and mine carry a horrible, eternal death penalty in hell - one which can't be paid by any amount of human goodness, but only by Jesus' death on the cross.
