Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Fatal Refusal - #5120
Good people, religious people tend to live in the false security that they're okay because they know a lot about Jesus. They're trying to do things Jesus likes. But that ignores what it is that keeps a person out of heaven forever - their sin. All the wrong things you've ever done in your life. They are, in God's courtroom, a capital crime, punishable by eternal death. No one with sin can possibly live in the presence of a sinless God, and sin must be paid for.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Children Who Expect Too Much - #5198
Maybe you're wrestling with discontentment right now because you've been expecting too much. You've looked around at a greedy world and you've started wanting what other worldlings have. But remember, it's all they've got! God has promised you rich rewards in heaven, but there's no promise of heaven on earth. Basically, Jesus said, "Expect a few years of sacrifice for an eternity of wealth."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No More Swiping! - #4028
There’s a “swiper” in real life, it turns out. He’s probably trying to steal from you. And the counter-attack against this thief is not all that different from the way those TV characters get rid of their Swiper.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Gerbil On A Wheel - #4065
I know more and more people who are tired of the "gerbil wheel" of status quo living. It's not that the wheel is bad - it just isn't satisfying.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Sleepwalking Into Alligators - #4075
Now, obviously, sleepwalking can be very dangerous. You can end up where you would never go if you were wide awake. Well, that's how a lot of Jesus' followers have ended up with the spiritual alligators.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Surprised People in Hell - #5286
Heaven and hell are nothing to gamble with. Don't let your religious pride cost you heaven.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Drinking from the Source - #5305
With the gap between you and God bridged by Jesus, you're finally drinking from the Source. It starts the day you "come to" Jesus, the day you "believe in" Him, by placing your total trust in the One who loved you enough to die for you and then was powerful enough to rise from the dead.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Lost and Not Knowing it - #5306
Pride may be the number one reason people will end up in hell instead of the heaven they were sure they were going to. But they never admitted they were lost. They never pinned all their hopes on their only hope, Jesus, the Savior.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pieces Without The Plan - #3864
Actually, that's a description of some of our lives: pieces without the plan--because we're away from the only One who has the plan. I guess, in a way, life is a mystery quilt. All we can see is the block we're working on right now. But every once in a while, we find ourselves asking that question that has haunted us for years, "Why am I doing all this? What does all this make?"
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You're Ready for a Change - #5511
Here was a man who was tired of same old, same old and willing to take a risk to go where he'd never been able to go before. In a way, that's what I'm asking you to consider today, because like many people, you may be ready for a change. Because life is lonely the way it is now; because life seems pretty meaningless. The question, "Why am I here?" still doesn't have a satisfactory answer after all these years. You're ready for a change.
