If we're honest with ourselves, many of us do acts of justice out of a sense of guilt. We see ads...

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You've Fallen and You Can't Get Up - #5036
Satan succeeds in keeping you down with the "What's the use?" lie when you make a fatal mistake. You focus on you instead of the One who died so you can be free.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Small Leaks - #5177
Honestly, now, where is the small spiritual leak in your life? Maybe it's just a small financial compromise, a little lie, a little flirtation with sexual sin, or some small fantasies that are setting you up for a major mistake. Maybe you're dating someone you know you shouldn't be, you're watching or listening to input that's slowly wearing down your resistance to sin. Or maybe it's just a little gossip, a little complaining, a little bad attitude, a little spiritual vacation. But little leaks like those are big enough for you to start taking on the water that can sink you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Taming the Final Frontier - #4019
I’d say that idea is close, but not the prize winner. The last frontier isn’t outer space – in fact, it’s inner space ... what’s inside you and me. Which includes our imagination, but plenty more. God’s view would seem to be that the “last frontier is the human heart.” That is the vast and violent wilderness that remains untamed inside us. And it’s usually the people closest to us who can attest to the fact that our dark side is alive and well – and yes, it’s untamed. They get to see and feel it all too often.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Healing Edge - #4032
There's this infection that every human being on this planet is fighting - it's actually a spiritual infection. This spiritual cancer is called "sin" in the Bible - and it can kill your future, your reputation, your marriage, your joy, your closeness to God. And, if it isn't cured, it can ultimately kill you forever by keeping you out of God's heaven.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Covering, Not Cleaning - #4033
We think it's gross that people would cover a mess like that rather than cleaning it up. Maybe we know a little about how God feels when we do the very same thing. When we're doing something wrong, we'd far rather cover it up than clean it up. But the mess and the stench just keep growing.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Getting Rid of the Guilt of a Lifetime - #5225
The Judge's declaration that you are not guilty - even though you are - because He offered His only Son to lay down His life to pay for what you've done, so you could be free from the guilt of every wrong thing you've ever done and have the hell you deserve cancelled for the heaven you could never deserve.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unlocked From the Outside - #5270
It took the coming and the dying of the Son of God to break the enslaving power of sin. By taking the death penalty for what we've done, Jesus has the power, not only to save us from our own hurtful ways, but to save us from the eternal penitentiary the Bible calls hell.

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 - Frequent Flyer Benefits - #5618
You've hung on, but it's getting harder to keep hanging on. And the Lord knows how hard it is right now. So He has sent you this reminder that the greatest benefits go to those who stay with Jesus, no matter what. He has some wonderful blessings, some unspeakable joy, some tremendous rewards for you if you'll stay faithful for a few more miles.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Freedom Line - #3994
Not all slaves wear chains or are sold on an auction block. Some of us who have been physically free our whole lives have never really been free on the inside. From the guilt over those mistakes in our past. From the shame over what we've been, what we've done. Some of us know what it is to be slaves to our dark side, to our anger, our selfishness, to habits and patterns we seem powerless to break.
