You don’t need to know everything there is to know to bear lots of fruit! This notion that because you don’t know everything, or because your mind is not fully renewed yet, that you can’t see miracles in your life is simply not true. Otherwise, most, if not all of us, would not be able to see miracles in our life, because we don’t see Jesus perfectly.

Proof That God Is Not In Control Of Everything (Quick Read)
It seems like many, if not most Christians, believe that God controls everything in the universe. They feel that God can intervene in situations wherever and whenever He wants. The only way a person can believe this (and I mean the only way), is to first believe that God can communicate good things to mankind apart from Jesus — simply because He feels like it.

The Real Tragedy (Quick Read)
Does Jesus like human suffering? Of course not! He came and suffered so that no one else would have to. But it is interesting, when you look at the accounts where Jesus wept or showed concern, it wasn’t over human suffering, but rather unbelief. Let’s explain.
Do You Believe This? (Quick Read)
John 11:23-26 (NKJV) Jesus said to her [to Martha], “Your brother will rise again… I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?“
Your IQ (Quick Read)
Some people feel very confident in their intellect. They’re very confident in their ability to understand things and speak intelligently about many different topics. Personally, I would rather say something foolish as I’m growing, but know that Jesus is my wisdom, then for everyone to think I’m so intelligent, and yet be a fool to God.
This Is Real (Quick Read)
At Reform Church, when we learn about Jesus being our resurrection and life, or about our redemption from this world, or about the authority that we have over this entire universe, it’s needful for us to remember… this is real.
Preoccupied With Jesus (Quick Read)
It’s funny when people get so preoccupied with whether they have enough faith or not. It monopolizes the minds of some people, as if that is something useful or profitable.
Get A Word (Quick Read)
In any situation that you go through, if you are confused, lacking confidence, discouraged, or just don’t know what to think (which none of us do on our own)… you need the voice of God.
Jesus Fixed Everything (Quick Read)
When Jesus was at the cross, He said, “It is finished.” That means that Jesus was finishing ALL of our problems! But so many people will tell you, “Oh, Jesus wasn’t taking ALL of my problems at the cross. There are still problems we will go through until Jesus comes back again. Jesus was ONLY finishing the punishment for sin at the cross!“
Your Reality Is Better (Quick Read)
Don’t daydream about something off in the future. Don’t fantasize. Don’t use your imagination to picture what things could be like. As a believer, your reality is much better than anything you could dream up, even if you don’t think so.
You Can Make It The Best Of Times (Quick Read)
So many believers allow their circumstances to dictate to them how well they do in life. That doesn’t have to be your story! The Lord doesn’t call you a tree planted by a river of water for no reason (Jer. 17).

Still Seated (Quick Read)
Enjoy the fact that Jesus is still seated today. That means that all your problems are still solved, otherwise He would have to come back and fix them again. He is still seated though! Which means that His work at the cross for you is still complete. It needs nothing additional, so He remains perfectly content at the right hand of God. No more work to do.
Freedom: The Opposite of Incurable (Quick Read)
If someone cuts their hand, gets the flu, or has a stomachache, even the world doesn’t worry about it too much. But why? Isn’t it uncomfortable? Well, yes, but they know that it usually doesn’t last long, and they will be feeling better soon.

Righteous When You’re Wrong? (Quick Read)
If you can’t feel confidently righteous when you do something wrong, then when? Only when you do right? You could’ve done that if Jesus never came. Jesus’ atonement is useless then.

Remember The Positives You HAVE (Quick Read)
When you pray, when you’re meditating, or even when you’re speaking to other people, remember the positive things that Jesus actually gave you, not just what He redeemed you from. What do I mean by this? Take a look at this statement:
Continue reading “Remember The Positives You HAVE (Quick Read)”
Think Jesus (Quick Read)
Positive thinking is of no use. Being optimistic is just another way of saying that you’re lying to yourself (only seeing the good side of things). The Gospel is not based on optimism but on facts — not seeing the rosey side of things, but seeing the full scope of things and how good all of it is.
Two Earths (Quick Read)
If you’ve been around Reform Church for a while, you know that Jesus has redeemed us from this present earth, and instead, put the image of the new earth in us.
“Bible-Believing” (Quick Read)
If you ask literally any Christian today, “Are you a Bible-believing Christian?“ They will undoubtedly tell you, “Yes!“ I think that most Christians BELIEVE that they are Bible-believing, but I think it’s less common than you might suppose.
Nobody’s Perfect? Untrue! (Quick Read)
Nobody is perfect. Everybody is flawed. Ever heard that before? Guess what? It’s not true. The Bible says that there are people that have been made perfect.
Call The Preacher (Quick Read)
Back in the day, people used to call preachers when someone died so that they could raise them back up again. Now we call preachers when someone dies so we can finalize their death with a funeral. I think we’re missing something.
That’s My Mind Being Renewed (Quick Read)
The world has disabilities, grey hair, belly fat, wrinkles, pains, and personality flaws. Believers? Nah! Believers only have unrenewed minds.

Anointing (Quick Read)
We’ve got everything we need inside of us, through Jesus. That includes the anointing (one who reveals) that teaches us everything we need to know. Any external teacher is just a help to us, not the way we hear from God for ourselves.
To Make You Happy – Part 3: Conditional (Quick Read)
How many times have you heard that your joy should be unconditional? That you should be happy no matter what happens? They say, “If somebody wins and you lose, just be happy anyway.“ They say, “If somebody has more than you, at least be happy for them.” They say, “Even if your life is hard right now, just be happy and praise the Lord regardless of what’s going on.”

To Make You Happy – Part 2 (Quick Read)
We speak a lot about what Jesus provided, but recently we explained WHY Jesus provided us what He did. We said that His motivation was for your enjoyment — simply to make you happy. This is not just something to make you feel better. This is, in fact, a biblically proven fact. God shared everything He has with you to make you happy! That’s the real reason.
To Make You Happy (Quick Read)
This may sound overly simplistic, but it’s a heck of a revelation. Do you know why God provided what He provided for you? We talk about WHAT God provided through Jesus — life and immortality, righteousness and rest from your works. But do you know WHY God wanted to provide these things to you? Do you know what his motive was? Here it is:
Sane (Quick Read)
When Jesus is teaching you it’s going to sound a lot different than what the world is saying. But I would rather be sane, with everyone thinking I’m crazy, than to be crazy and the whole world agree with me.
1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him…

Sugarcoat (Quick Read)
We don’t sugarcoat the truth of Jesus at Reform Church. It’s already sweeter than any coat we could put on it. Whoever said the truth hurts? Impossible. There’s no bad news with Jesus.
Why Perfected Love Casts Out Fear – Part 3 (Quick Read)
Psalms 34:4 (NKJV) I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
If Jesus already delivered us from everything we could ever be afraid of, and yet we still fear something, that fear cannot be based in reality. We are seeing something incorrectly if we are in fear. Both cannot be true at the same time. Jesus cannot have delivered you from all your fears already at the cross and you still have a valid fear. True, people can still fear things, but it is no longer a valid fear. It’s merely something about the cross they aren’t realizing right now.

Why Perfected Love Casts Out Fear – Part 2 (Quick Read)
Psalms 34:4 (NKJV) I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
If Jesus has delivered us from everything we could possibly be afraid of, then fear can be defined as simply some absence of the knowledge of what Jesus did.
