Sharing Your Faith Without Being A Jerk

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 10.

share

Jesus sends out the 72 followers to go and prepare the cities for his entrance, ahead of him. He tells them to go in peace and eat whatever is set before them. I like this kind of evangelism. Jesus isn’t mean about sharing the Kingdom of God, he sends it out with kindness and peace. How do you share your faith in Jesus? Are you a jerk about it? Do you have to convert people to the faith and make it all about “you”, or can you let the Spirit of God do the work? Listen with us at Crossroads as we practice sharing faith as a spiritual discipline.

Following Jesus; One Step At a Time

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on spiritual disciplines.

follow_Jesus_one

We need something to calibrate our compass of faith, once in a while. We need to ground ourselves in the ways of Jesus so that we get to know Him and become more like Him in our daily walk with God. It’s one thing to “know God”, but another thing entirely to practice the steps of faith that draw us closer in relationship with Jesus. We overview the series in this talk about following Jesus; one step at a time.

Being Made Right With God; John 20

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being made right with God.

Easter2017_-_Art_HorizThere are so many religions and different views of faith in the world today. How do we know which one is the one to lead us to God? How does one know if a religion is teaching the right doctrine in order to know God personally? We explain this to you in our Easter 2017 sermon, Being Made Right With God. You will enjoy testimony from Michelle Allen also, as she describes her living faith in God. If the resurrection is true, then Christian faith is true.

Palm Sunday; “How Do We Worship?”

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 19.

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 1.02.26 PMJesus had just come from Zacchaeus’s house where Zach is transformed by the loving grace of Jesus. Then as Jesus walks toward Jerusalem, his disciples secure a donkey for the triumphal entry. They lay down palm branches and their coats as Jesus enters into the city. They praise Jesus and give him their worship. Some reject him and tell Jesus to stop this blasphemy. What would you do? Where is your allegiance to Jesus? Some rejoice over the God of the Universe sending His very Son for our salvation. Some don’t understand at all, and some completely reject the work of God through Jesus. Where do you stand on this issue?

Don’t Squander Opportunities (Acts 24)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 24.

Acts_Lighthouse.2.pngThe Apostle Paul is held in prison for 2 years after giving the speech of his life to Governor Felix. He says that he believes in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ. Felix keeps him under lock and key but wants to listen to what the wise Apostle has to say about Jesus. Paul shares about the scriptures that he would later write. I wonder if you’re more like the Apostle Paul with people, or more like Governor Felix? Felix only listened when it was convenient. Are you like this?

Keep Your Focus On Jesus (Acts 23)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 23.

acts_lighthouse-3We are now into the thick of the trial over the Apostle Paul’s testimony to the Jews. He stands before the Sanhedrin to give reason for the faith he believes. He believes in the resurrection from the dead, including the afterlife. The Sadducees disagree and want him dead. Paul’s nephew saves the day with a little obedience to God in telling Paul about the plot to kill him. He tells the commander of the guard and Paul’s life is spared. What are some of the hurdles in faith that you can’t seem to overcome? Do you have obstacles in your life, self-inflicted, or otherwise, that keep you from enjoying the grace of God. Join us as we talk about legalism and overcoming the obstacles of our faith.

What Is Your S.T.O.R.Y. & Why Does It Matter? (Acts 22)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 22.

screen-shot-2017-02-20-at-9-01-56-pmWe see that the Apostle Paul is given the opportunity to share his testimony in a public setting. This is Paul giving his defense for why the people shouldn’t kill him. We can learn something from Luke writing Paul’s personal testimony in the book of Acts. We learn to start at the very beginning, tell the truth about your past, offer your life to God, reject your stinking thinking, and your story isn’t for you, anyways. Join us as we learn how to share our testimony of faith with others.
