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 - Finally Clean
Have you ever had some stubborn stains on your favorite clothes or your nice tablecloths, and you wish they could look as good as new?. On a rare occasion, you can actually get those stains out and say, "It's finally clean. It's been washed, treated, and all the dirty spots came out!" ... That could be a description of you!

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 - Knowing What It Is To Be Broken
You don't have to go into a prison to find people who are "broken." There's so much pain today, and so much of it is from broken things—broken families, broken health, broken hearts, broken trust. ... It may be even in spite of a life that's reasonably successful and outwardly looks fine.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Totaled At Christmas
It's no fun having your car totaled or to have your life totaled, especially at Christmas. In the midst of all the joy and excitement, maybe the Christmas season finds you wounded and hurting. Divorce, disaster, death, depression, and disappointment hurt anytime, but especially at Christmas.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hurting And Passed By
Is the world speeding past the hurt that you carry inside? Everybody's in a hurry to get where they're going. Meanwhile, you suffer with that brokenness inside you in a world that doesn't know, or just doesn't care.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Life-Changing Heart Surgery
While medical history records that the first heart transplant was performed by Dr. Barnard in the 1960s, real heart transplants were actually pioneered a millenia ago by the Master Heart Surgeon. This miraculous procedure is more life changing than any medical procedure could ever be.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Animal's Fury
Ever wonder why you can't control your anger? It’s because there is a deadly animal inside you, tearing you apart. It's that part of you that says things that deeply hurt the people you love even though you don't really want to hurt them. ... It's whatever produces the dark side of you—the bitterness, self-destructive thoughts, adulterous inclinations, and the anger. This is the side of you that you hate. The people you love hate it and God hates it, but you seem powerless to fight it off.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Volcano Scars
When you're angry, you're probably a lot like a volcano. You erupt, spew out your lava, and often blow away a piece of the other person, if not yourself. ... Every one of us carries around parts of us that have been mortally wounded by something someone said to us in anger. They may have forgotten it, but we can't ever forget it because those create volcano scars. Why do we do this to other people and usually the people we love the most?
