Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Making it Spring - #5013
Hard, difficult people are often folks who have experienced a lot of wintry treatment from people and some of it may be their own fault. But more cold will not help blossom them into something better. Only warmth will do that. How about singing up for the Barnabas Club? Make up your mind that you're going to ask God for the grace to regularly affirm that person, to tell them their worth and beauty. Make them feel safe when they're with you. Be the one person who expects the best of them, not the worst.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unappreciated Beauty - #5105
To put it simply, you did the sinning, but Jesus did the dying for it so you could cross the awful sin-canyon between you and God and experience the love you were made for. And the One who gave you your worth. Suddenly, with Him in your heart, you know who you are - someone worth so much to God that He made you in His image and paid for you with His blood.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No One There to Celebrate You - #5195
Do you know how Jesus' friends knew it was Him after He came back from the dead? By the nail prints in His hands. Those prints, hammered there when He was nailed to the cross, are there forever. And when Jesus looks at His hands, He sees the nail prints and He thinks of you, because He died on that cross for you. You can walk up to that cross in your mind and say these words right from the Bible, "He loved me and gave Himself for me."


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Only Passing It On - #4047
The waitress is right. As much as I appreciate her service, she does not get the credit for the great dinner I'm eating. She's just passing on the good work that someone else did. So are we - as we score our victories, touch some lives, accomplish some good things. We are only serving up what someone else actually has done - what God has done.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Everyone's First Class - #4066
The challenge is to make sure we don't have the people in our life divided into two categories, like most airplanes do. OK, over here are the people I treat special, and here are the people I give something less than my best to. See, our human nature tends to turn it on a little more when the person has some money, or when they're physically attractive, when they're "important," when they've got a great personality, when they can help us in some way or make us look good or feel good.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Trapped By The Baggage - #4070
Here, God has great plans for Saul, but he's not there for them because he's hiding in all this baggage. Over the years, many of God's children have missed God's plan because they were buried in their baggage. Like us that chaotic day at the airport, a lot of us can't move ahead because we've got all this baggage to deal with.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Wasting What's Worth So Much - #5221
If you don't know what you're worth, you go through life just settling - settling for whatever love, whatever pleasure, whatever acceptance you can get. Usually at a high price tag to the very worth that you're trying to find.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Sending Ammo to the Enemy - #3841
If you are more and more getting life revolving around you, if you're becoming more and more self-seeking, self-promoting, self-centered, the devil has you exactly where he wants you. It's exactly where he was just before he was expelled from heaven. Now, before the fall, "humble yourself under God's mighty hand". It never has been all about you. It's all about Him!


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Bid for You - #3844
It may be that you don't feel like you're worth much - not after the things you've been called, the way you've been treated, the abuse, the abandonment, the rejection you've experienced. But none of that has anything to do with how much you're worth. Your value is based on Who made you - and how much your Creator sacrificed for you. No one on earth gave you your worth - and no one on earth can take it away!


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Cover Comes Off - #3860
Actually, prayer should be the time when we expose what we don't want anyone to see or know. It is meant to be the place where we can be 100% honest and transparent. And when we are, some amazing things can happen.
