Watching, Not Waiting

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Book of Acts.

LIGHTHOUSE

This week we look at chapter one of Acts. We have learned to ask two important questions when reading the text of the Bible;

1. Where do we see our personal brokenness in the reading?

2. Where do we see the redeeming work of Jesus  Christ in this reading?

As we look through the Book of Acts, we pay attention to the true character of God. We look to the character of God so that we have a firm foundation to stand on when all around us is crumbling. Join us each week as we walk through the Book of Acts together.

The Death of Contentment

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on quitting on comparison.

comparingComparison is a killer. It kills your joy, it kills relationships, it kills marriages, it kills your purposes in the world. Why? Comparison is an open admission to God that you’re not happy with who He made you to be, and you wish you were like someone else. There may be something called healthy competition, or challenge to grow stronger, but the negative side of challenge is comparison. Don’t compare yourself to others, it leads only to pride, or to resentment.

We Have To Quit Living By Fear

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the idea of quitting on the game of fear.

living by fear

We have lost enough battles to over fear, but we cannot lose the war. You don’t have to live a life of fear any longer. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and a sound mind. It’s time to use that sound mind to overcome fear in life. Fear grows when we give it power. You no longer need to be afraid. Stand courageous before the Lord and let His grace empower you.

Time To Quite Complaining

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on quitting on complaining.

quit_complaining.1We spend so much time on wasted words. It’s so easy to think of the negative rather than the positive. Complaining is our default mechanism because of our sin nature. We can learn to quit on complaining by analyzing our complaining habits. Join us as we walk through Philippians 2 together. You should have the same attitude as Christ Jesus, who never complained.

Quit Making Excuses

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on quitting.

quit_work copy

Quit making excuses about things in your life that are too difficult to accomplish, or too challenge to take on. You don’t need to keep making excuses, because no one cares how good your excuses are. Jesus tells a story in Luke 14 where people give excuses instead of coming to the Master’s banquet. He is saying that our excuses have no place in the Kingdom of God. In order to grow in faith, we need to quit making excuses.

Debunking Some Myths About Sin

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 John 1:8-10.

Urban LegendsWhen it comes to admitting our sin, we shy away. Most often we come up with excuses about sin, and say things like, “I”m not really a bad person”, or “If no one knows, I can get away with it”, or even “I’ve already sinned, I might as well continue”. When we “excuse” our way out of sin, we end up never needing the Savior to forgive us. “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” Don’t be deceived, sin is an all-consuming toxic sickness in our lives, and God has given us the remedy through salvation in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit of God is the only one who can purify you from unrighteousness. The process of this is through our repentance of sins.

God Allows More Than You Can Handle

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Urban Legends.

Urban Legends

God will often allow you to have more than you can handle. Why do people die unexpectedly? Why do we have so many with cancer? Why is there so much pain in the world, right now? God is shaping those who have faith to be like Christ. Stop saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” We debunk the myths of spirituality here at Crossroads. Pay attention, so you don’t end up saying the wrong thing to people who are suffering through pain.
