Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Where You Were Born to Be - #4658
You know there's got to be something more. Maybe God is stirring your soul and trying to move you where you were born to be, doing what you were born to do. And it's different from what you're doing now. Don't be afraid of it. Be expectant. And be obedient - no matter how risky that obedience looks. There's actually no such thing as a risky obedience - only a risky disobedience.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Deeply Personal - #4204
Dr. Lee wasn't talking about some time-travel experience he'd had. He was talking about his deep feeling that when Jesus was dying on that cross, he was totally identified with what Jesus was doing there. It was his sin Jesus was paying the price for there. The great painter, Rembrandt, must have had that same sense when he painted his rendition of Christ's crucifixion. When his friends pointed out that a man in the crowd there looked like Rembrandt, he replied, "That is me."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Dark Side - #4207
Where the light doesn't shine - that's the dark side. The sad thing is that many of us have a dark side; parts of our life, our personality, our lifestyle where we don't let the light shine. The light of the S-o-n of God. And those parts, like the moon, are cold and barren - possibly hidden from everyone's view. Everyone, that is, except God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Painful Road to Beauty - #4618
Now why would we rejoice and be thankful for the hard things we're going through? Because we understand they're the process by which the glory comes, by which the hope comes.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Getting Back What You Lost - #4241
Imagine the mess I would have been in without the passport. And I didn't even know I had lost it. There are lots of things in life like that - valuable things that we lose without ever realizing at the time what we've lost until it's too late. Treasures like your reputation, your virginity, a clean conscience, your marriage, a valued relationship, your sense of worth, people's trust in you. We did the wrong thing because of what we thought we could gain by sinning. We never realized what we would lose.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Recovering from a Wrong Turn - #4257
Someone's listening today who has made the same mistake our friend made when he wanted to head home. You have made a wrong turn. You're driving full speed ahead in the wrong direction. At least, from God's perspective - which is the only perspective that counts. You're compromising your honesty, your purity, your relationship with Him, or the plans God has for you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Same Old Baggage - #4778
Why does Jesus ask us if we want to get well? Because sometimes we're afraid to change. We've gotten used to playing the victim role, the loser role. We've settled into an identity that revolves around that same old baggage.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Wrong Number Breakdown - #4791
We can't understand what it takes to reach God until we understand what it is that keeps us from being able to reach Him. We have this wall between God and us called sin - which means we've made ourselves our own god by choosing to do it our way instead of God's. And we have earned an eternal death penalty, which only one person even claimed to pay, could pay. God's Son, Jesus, loved you enough to do the dying for your sin on His cross.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why it Doesn't Have to Be the Way it's Always Been - #4801
Because of what Jesus did, things don't always have to be like they've always been. When you open your life to Jesus, God's Rescuer from our sin, you receive His supernatural power to beat the darkness inside you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Good News When There's No Way - #4809
God may use humans to deliver His resources to your life, but it doesn't come from them. It never has. It only comes through them. So when all the human sources can't do it, your real source is still there. Yes, you're stuck. Yes, there's nothing you can to do get yourself out. Yes, there's no conventional way to get out of this. But if you'll listen very carefully, you may hear some sounds getting closer and closer to you. That's your Rescuer, doing whatever it takes to bring out the one He loves.
