Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Battle for Your Life - #4826
This very day the life-taker, the devil himself, is trying to hold onto you. He wants to keep you away from Jesus until your last heartbeat, and then you'll be his forever. But the Life-Giver, Jesus Christ, is fighting for your soul. He paid the price for your sin on the cross. And now you are in the middle of a tug-of-war on which your entire eternity depends; Satan trying to keep you on his path - to kill you - and Jesus inviting you to give yourself to Him so He can give you life. They won't decide whether you go to heaven or hell - you will.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Eating, Then Lying Down - #4827
Spiritual digestion takes place something like this. First, you read a few verses over two or three times, chewing on them until you can put them into words of your own. You first answer the question, "What is God saying here?" A lot of us stop there. You've got to ask the next question, "What should I do differently today because God says this?"

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Looking Backwards - #4113
Unfortunately, a lot of people live their lives like the people on that roller coaster - always looking backwards, looking at where they've already been instead of where they're going. And that pretty much guarantees that your life is going to be a roller coaster ride!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Joy of Facing Forward - #4868
I want to encourage you, on behalf of the Lord of new beginnings, to make today the day that you choose to finally close that dark old chapter. That may require forgiving someone who wronged you - not because they deserve it, any more than you and I deserved Jesus' forgiveness. You'll do it because Jesus commanded us to follow His example and to release that person by forgiving them - leaving them to God to make it right, committing to treat them, not the way they treated you, but the way Jesus treated you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Finally Clean - #4871
Here's the point: if you will go to the place where God says you can be cured of your terminal sin-cancer and do what He says, He will make you clean and new. You can't buy His forgiveness by giving Him money. You can't earn His forgiveness by doing great things. You can only receive His forgiveness by going, in your heart, to Jesus' cross and throwing yourself on His mercy and His love.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Living Very Dangerously - #4174
You say to yourself, "If only they had listened to the warnings." That must be what God says every time someone goes into eternity unprepared. The Bible makes it clear that He wants us to go to heaven when we die, to experience His awesome love forever.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Ugly Beneath The Beautiful - #4179
Most of us have some ugly that we would just as soon not have anyone see. There's ugly stuff in our past, in our heart, in the closets of our life. The secrets that we don't want anyone to know about - the dark side we try to conceal. Those weaknesses, those failures, and the mistakes that betray the wonderful view that we portray to the world.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Someone Else's Fault - #4191
But it's no joke that blaming someone else is, for most of us, one of our favorite ways to account for something in our life that shouldn't be there - whether it's a bad attitude, a bad habit, a bad situation, a bad relationship.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Abandoned No More - #4194
There are a whole lot of folks who had a mother and father - but have felt orphaned, in a way, for much of their life; abandoned, left behind, misunderstood, left alone. Maybe you know the feeling.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Riding in the Car that's Looking Backward - #4896
Jesus is the Lord of new beginnings, of fresh starts, of clean slates. You need to come to Him and let Him release you from being tied to the people who've hurt you, by getting His grace to forgive them. You need to ask His help to begin to define your life, not by what has happened, but by what's going to happen; what can happen because of Jesus in your life.
