Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Unstoppable Plans of God - #5204
Now it may be that right now there appears to be no way things can turn out right. The money isn't there, your health isn't there, the relationship looks impossible, the job frustrations are mounting, the mountain isn't moving, and the answer isn't coming. It looks as if there's no way for things to work out, not enough time for an answer to come. But you belong to the God who, with the stroke of an evil man's pen, moved an empire to place His kids, Joseph and Mary, right where they were supposed to be.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Gift With Your Name On it - #5205
We deserve the death penalty that God has put on anyone who has disobeyed His laws and run their own life - that's all of us. We don't deserve the gift of eternal life. We can't deserve the gift of eternal life. Someone else had to pay for it, and someone else did. "In Christ Jesus our Lord" it says. Why? Because the sinless Son of God carried the death penalty for your sin and mine when He died on that awful cross.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Wonderful Time to Be Born - #5206
On this Christmas Day, I want to invite you to consider an exciting possibility; that you could have a Christmas birthday for the rest of your life. Obviously, you can't change the day you were physically born. You showed up without being consulted about the date, right? But you can make this the day that you're finally born into the family of God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Dependence Day - #5242
Prayer is our language of dependency. You can pretty much tell how dependent you are on God by how often you feel the need to cry out to Him in prayer. There is so much more waiting for you if you'll only learn how powerful it is to recognize your powerlessness before God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Christmas Invitation - #5466
You've done Christian things, you've gone to Christian meetings, you've believed Christian beliefs, you've developed a Christian image, but you've never really opened the door of your heart to the Savior who died for you, who is once again knocking on the door of your heart this Christmas.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Decorated, But Dead - #5467
Tragically, there are a lot of people whose spiritual condition might be described as "Christmas Tree Syndrome." They're decorated, but they're dead - spiritually, that is. The Bible makes it disturbingly clear that you can be decorated with all kinds of Christian decorations and look very much alive spiritually, but still be what the Bible describes as spiritually dead.
