Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - What Happened to the Joy - #8288 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I don’t remember a lot of facts they taught me in science class, but I remember the experiments. Like the day our teacher had us illuminate a light bulb the hard way–by feverishly turning this crank to generate some voltage–until finally the bulb just started to flicker to life. I’m thinking, “There’s got to be an easier way.” Yeah, like just plugging it into an outlet! ... I’m Ron Hutchcraft. Now, I’ve tried living for Jesus and serving Jesus both ways, by plugging into the main power source and by cranking it out.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Flowers or Fruit - #8280 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
The pear trees around our Ministry Headquarters really show off in the Spring! They’re covered with these beautiful white flowers. It’s like an explosion of life and color, but there’s an ugly little secret about those pear trees. They’re called ornamental. They don’t produce any pears, just pretty flowers—like lots of people at church every week.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Missing What Matters - #8265 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
It took me a while to admit it, but my arms were no longer long enough for me to read what was in my hand. Yeah, in other words, I needed glasses. You see, I’m farsighted.

When you buy your kids or grandkids toys these days, you'd better be sure you have batteries. They're usually not included and the toys usually require them. My daughter pointed out to me recently a helpful little feature some of her kids' toys have. It’s an indicator that their battery is low. She said, "It’s too bad people don't have that." I said, “That’s a thought worth pursuing.” So I will.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Last Monster in the Dark
Are you scared to die? Does thinking about your death make you nervous about eternity? You don't have to be afraid of that monster in the dark anymore. ... The Word of God in I Corinthians 15:54 says, "Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where oh death is your victory? Where Oh death is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law, but thanks be to God, He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." There's the last monster—the one that lurks in the dark no matter how old we are—death.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Only an Interruption
Life's partings are tough, especially when someone we love slips into eternity. Death tears us up inside, and the grief seems almost unbearable. If you and your loved one belong to Jesus, then this is not the termination of your relationship. Only because of Jesus Christ, can this interruption be bearable.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Difference Between Life and Death
There are eight powerful words from Zephaniah 3:17 in God's Word. It simply says, "The Lord your mighty to save." He really is. He has both the love and the power to do whatever it takes to save you from the emptiness and turbulence of a life away from God and from the awful agony of an eternity without Him. God is in the saving business.
