Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unnecessary Drowning
Many believe they can rescue themselves in this world by their own goodness. None of us will make it that way. ... Maybe you have believed the lie that eternal life is a reward for your performance, but eternal life is not a reward, it's a rescue. If we could have made it on our own, God's Son would have never given His life.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Someone to Trust With the Keys to Everything
Finding someone to trust these days is getting harder and harder, especially when it comes to someone you can trust with your life, your deepest hurts, your darkest secrets, your fondest hopes, and your greatest needs. They must be someone from whom you have no fear of betrayal, desertion, or rejection. We all hunger in our soul for one person we can so totally trust with all the keys to every corner of our life. Ultimately, you need someone you will never lose after you've trusted your heart and soul to them.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Knowing Before the Day
Who is really going to heaven? Most people think it will be based on whether our good deeds outweighed our bad deeds, and that we won’t know until we get God's verdict when we die. ... This is the wrong idea about what gets a person into heaven.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Myth of "Plenty of Time"
Your life is full of things to do, places to go, and goals to achieve. With all that you have going, the thought of the dash just suddenly ending is probably hard to imagine. Yet, we don't dare forget how short our dash really is, or we may miss the only things that will matter when our dash on earth is over. With every passing year, we probably all begin to understand what Dr. Billy Graham was talking about when asked what the greatest surprise in his life has been. He simply said, "The brevity of it."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Are You Ready
Do you know the truth about the end of the world? It's time to get serious about your eternity. ... It's time to take a look at your future. Someday, maybe soon, one way or the other you will suddenly be facing Jesus. He's warned you He's coming. It's time to get ready.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Be Safe in Dangerous Times
You might say that God has a tide table, or information that can actually help you avoid getting swamped by high tide. According to the Bible, high tide is coming. The Bible refers to it as "the last days." That's "last" as in the turbulent days that count down to the finale of human history—the personal return of Jesus Christ to write that final chapter. Interestingly enough, surveys show that over half of Americans expect that return of Christ to happen. The Bible leaves no doubt and also describes the times leading up to it.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hollow on the Inside
This is a world where image and appearance are everything. We work on our fitness, our hair, and our wardrobe, making good comments, making good impressions, looking like we have it all together, but there might be another you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Vacancy
Is there a vacancy in your heart? There are times when a hotel or motel has run out of rooms and there is no vacancy. You are turned down and you can't stay there. ... Now the One who died for you knocks on the door of your heart again, but He won't forever. One day you will, in a sense, be knocking on the door of heaven. If you have never opened your heart for Jesus to become your own Savior from your own sin, there will be no vacancy there for you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Deepest Cry of the Human Heart
In our world today, there are so many people crying for love. So many human hearts are saying, "Somebody, somewhere, love me." For many who believe in God, there is still that awful vacuum. It's possible to believe in God, to do God's things, and to still miss the deep experience of His love. Without that love, the emptiness and loneliness in your heart is never satisfied—no matter how many human love relationships you experience.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Freedom From Depression
Sometimes it's easy to feel like you're a bird locked up in a cage wanting to be free. Your cage may be your painful memories, a broken heart, or a broken dream. ... Maybe you’re caged in by an addiction, a habit, or some anger that is eating you up inside. It also might be depression or even suicidal thoughts that have you held in. There's a cover on that cage, whatever it is. It's dark in there and there isn't anything to sing about.
