Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Homeless Feeling - #8126
You don’t have to be without a home or a memory to need those same answers, “Who am I and who do I belong to?” Those soul questions are bottom-line for living a life that matters, and they’ve driven people to look in relationships and recognition and even religion to find answers, only to leave us still haunted by that homeless feeling.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Expensive Love - #4245
He sacrificed himself to save others. He gave up his life so others could live. I owe my life to a man like that. His name is Jesus. Given the choice of letting you and me die for the sinning we have done, He passed the lifeline to us and died in our place. That's a love you do not want to miss because you never really took the lifeline.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Making Life an Adventure - #4266
At the age of four, our grandson is starting to figure out what really makes life an adventure - it's called "giving living." Living your life, not as a taker, but as a giver ... not to make a name or make a fortune, but to make a difference. That's one reason we experience so much joy at Christmastime. There's something that feels really good about making others happy and sacrificing to give. Guess what? That's how we're supposed to live all year long!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Recipe For Heroes - #4117
When I read Captain Lewis' invitation to Captain Clark, I couldn't help but think how much it reminds me of the much greater invitation that Jesus Christ gives to you and me. It is not an invitation to a party or vacation - it's an invitation to join Him in a bold adventure, filled with "dangers, difficulties, and fatigues." Oh yes, and the "honor and the rewards."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Question From Narnia - #8071
In the midst of the battle his sister asks him a question that continues to haunt me: “Exactly who are you doing this for?” A question Jesus may be asking some of us about the work we’re doing.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Medal of Honor Men - #8074
Not really, but the kind of love God expects of us husbands, is the kind that does abandon our self preservation for our wife. To live a life that matters at home, her needs matter more than yours. Her need to be heard matters more than your need to get things done
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Return to Sender - #4168
Without being told, our little guy understands that some of what he has isn't for him - it's for helping other people hear about Jesus. The secret here is that he's only giving back to the person who gave it to him in the first place. Just like us - when we give to the work of God on earth. We're just giving it back to the one who gave it to us in the first place.
Swahili God Tests Abrahams Love
Swahili: God asks Abraham to take Isaac his only son, & offer him as a sacrifice. Abraham takes Isaac to a mountain & prepares to obey God. God provides a lamb instead, knowing that Abraham loves Him above all else. Abraham's servant looks for a wife for Isaac & God helps him bring back Rebekah.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Discount Disciples - #4999
The way of Jesus that we claim to walk today was, indeed, very expensive for those first Christians; for millions who have suffered or died for the name of Jesus in every generation, including our own. And it cost Jesus everything. So who am I - who are we - that we should get off cheap?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Best Thing God Ever Did for You - #5080
Superman is just a story. There is a Father who sent His only son to do for us what we could never do for ourselves, and that is not a story. It's history. What God did actually has the power to change your personal destiny. Because God looked down and saw your need and my need, and He said, "I'm sending them My only Son."
