Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - The Year That Everything Changed - #5698
God wants you to enter His Throne Room as Isaiah did - by prayer. He wants you to see His majesty; to realize that, by praying, you are entering the Throne Room from which 100 billion galaxies are governed and bringing your life and your needs to the One who rules it all. When everything's changing, you need to dwell on the awesomeness of your God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Painful Process, Beautiful Result - #9199 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
My wife and I were able to be there for the birth of our new grandson. It was exciting, but not as exciting for our daughter-in-law. I was just outside when our little guy arrived, and it was clear even from there that it was a painful and intense delivery—which I think is the only kind there is. It didn’t come as a surprise to our daughter-in-law. She did this before two years ago when she had our granddaughter. But knowing how painful it was going to be, she did it again, and millions of women have. And the lesson of childbirth might be just some encouragement to you right now if you’re trying to understand what God’s doing in your life right now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Your Trash Transformed - #9193 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
It’s the nicest garbage truck I’ve ever seen…it’s bright and clean and new—it’s in a recent TV commercial for a waste management company. As the truck makes its way through the gleaming streets of a big city, people watch it go by appreciatively, admiringly. It’s very realistic, of course. I love their motto though: “The waste we collect helps power over a million homes.” Now, that’s cool! Garbage recycled into power that helps a lot of lives.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Shower Power
Those five young missionaries were martyred, but as a result, the Gospel did get through. Today, virtually that whole tribe knows Christ. It is partly due to the efforts of the missionaries’ widows and especially through a sister of one the martyrs’, Rachel Saint. She faced the typical difficulties of trying to translate the Scriptures into another language, but she quickly came across a major problem. The Auca language doesn't have a word for forgive. They didn’t ever forgive anyone. If there was a problem, they just typically killed the person. Well, Rachel Saint found a word to describe it—washed.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Getting Rid of What You Have Hung Onto So Long
That's the very feeling that so many people over so many years have experienced when they surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. They came to the dumpster of God and unloaded stuff that they'd hung onto for a long time. It's an experience God wants you to have even today.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Wound is the Battle
If you can win the battle by cleansing the wound right away, then they can win the war by heading off the infection. It's a strategy more of us should be using to prevent the kind of spiritual infection that poisons your joy, your peace, and your closeness to God. The wound is any point in your life where sin has been able to get in. It's that first detour from what you know is right. The infection is the widespread loss of spiritual health and power that damages so much we care about, and it can be prevented by a prompt cleansing. A cleansing that goes deep is needed, and there is such a cleansing.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Feeling Dirty, Getting Clean - #5071
Just think of Jesus absorbing all the guilt, and the shame, and the hell of every angry thing you've ever done; every dirty thing, every selfish thing, every deceitful thing, every hurting thing. That's how much He loves you. That's how much He wants to forgive you so you can have the unspeakable joy of being clean and the guarantee of being with Him in His heaven forever.
