Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Beauty of an Arranged Marriage - #5248
What you don't want to do is run ahead into a relationship that you've arranged. Impatience is the greatest enemy of God's best. Remember, there is far more lonely loneliness than not being married, and that's being married to the wrong person.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bad Ways to Do Good Things - #5282
Here’s the sobering question for you and me: do I sometimes manipulate people and situations to help a good thing happen? The first syllable of manipulation tells the whole ugly story - man. I can’t wait for God to do it His way. Human manipulation aborts the perfect processes of God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Souvenirs of Sin - #3803
If you have to carry some of the consequences of what you've done wrong, it can be powerful incentive not to do it again--which can save you from consequences that will be far worse. Now that's why God sometimes allows you and me to experience some unpleasant results of our sin. It's not that He hasn't forgiven us or that He doesn't love us. It's because He does.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Grabbing What's Quick, Missing What's Better - #5289
God designed sex to be one man with one woman in a committed lifetime relationship called marriage. And when you wait for that kind of exclusive love, you experience sex at its best - the way God designed it - Designer love.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Personal Side of the Death Penalty - #3814
We're not talking here about a death sentence from some human court, but from the Governor of the universe. It's actually spelled out in six sobering words in our word for today from the Word of God in Romans 6:23 - "The wages of sin is death." Now that sentence actually goes back to the beginning of time when God announced the penalty for mankind's first sin - "You will surely die" (Genesis 2:17).

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Really Amazing Grace - #3836
I've even had people confide to me a feeling I would call testimony envy - the sense that I almost got cheated because I didn't have a lot of really sinful sin to be saved from. Well, maybe "amazing grace" doesn't seem all that amazing to you because you weren't much of a "wretch." Well, His grace is just as amazing for you - and in some ways more amazing - as it is for the person who was dramatically lost and dramatically found.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Parents Hardest Job - #3837
There's that hard word - "leave." Ultimately, your son or daughter is supposed to leave you. Which tells us that our children are not ours to keep. And our mission from God: to prepare our children to leave us - to live without us. Not to make them tied to us, always dependent on us.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Fruit With Seeds - #3851
The great creative plan of God is that when He creates a life, He creates it with the potential of reproducing life like itself. "Fruit with seed in it." The moment you gave your heart to Jesus Christ, God made you fruit with seeds - with the capability and the purpose of making some more like you! Apples generate apples, oranges generate oranges, and followers of Jesus generate other followers of Jesus. Or at least they're supposed to.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Investing Where You Cannot Lose - #3960
In a sense, any earth-concern or earth-stuff we invest in is going to turn out to be worth nothing in the end -- even if our financial dividends and profits continue to grow. But "in the end" means "eternity" - where only things that last forever will prove to have been life's most profitable investments.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Platform You've Been Given - #3961
And God uses your abilities and interests and life experiences to put you in a position in other people's lives that can literally change their eternal address. It's obvious that the Old Testament hero, Joseph, understood this divine platform thing. You can hear it in his words recorded in Genesis 50:20, our word for today from the Word of God. The Lord built Joseph's platform through the brutal attack of his brothers, his being sold into Egyptian slavery, his first job in Egypt, and then two years in prison for something he didn't do.
