Extreme Generosity

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on having a generous mindset, rather than a selfish mindset.

generous

We are born with a sinful, selfish mindset… Me first. It takes a relationship with God, through Jesus, to be more generous and giving in life. When you encounter the living God, you grow in faith and in awareness of others, so much so, that you want to give to others, more than receive from them. What kind of mindset do you have? Are you stingy and selfish, or thoughtful and generous with your giving? We want to grow in God and become generous like his Son, Jesus Christ. This happens when we let the Spirit of God lead our lives and lean more into Godly living.

Samson; Where Does Your Strength Reside?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Judges 13-16.

Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 3.14.54 PMSamson was a wild man, who was given the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish various tasks for the Lord over the people of Israel, but he certainly wasn’t a man to emulate your life after. He struggled with issues many of us struggle with today; ego, lust, power, and difficulty with intimate relationships, among other things. We look at the life of Samson so that we can understand where our strength resides. I wonder if you are self aware enough to know what could bring you down? What are the issues in your life that draw you away from God, rather than draw you towards God? Can you determine the strength of God in your life, or do you succumb to weaknesses all the time? Find out with us, where your strength can reside, with God.

Missionary God; The Battle of Kingdoms

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 2.

king.herod-temple copy

Like King Herod, at the birth of Jesus, we resist the Kingdom of God breaking into our world. Sometimes people forget that God doesn’t come into our world like a tyrant and terrorist, but rather God comes near as a offering of peace, like a little child. God’s Kingdom is breaking into this dark world to take over your kingdom of selfishness and pride. Is it possible that we act like King Herod in our resistance to God’s Kingdom also? We need to be like the wisemen who came seeking proximity to Jesus, bringing gifts of worship to the Savior. We all, like King Herod, have gone astray, but God has come for us like only the Missionary God can.

She saw the mission of God, working around the world. Little did she know that God would be building her up personally, as much as building up His Kingdom around her and through her. Join us as we hear how the work of God is seen in the world.

God Includes Outsiders; Faith of Rahab

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Joshua 2.

Screen Shot 2017-11-28 at 10.59.37 AM

The faith story of Rahab, the “former” prostitute is compelling to say the least. Rahab was known for an interesting moral occupation. We might even say immoral. But when she gave her life in faith to those who could save her, we see that her history was changed. In Matthew 1, when the genealogy of Jesus is listed, we see something missing. When you come to faith in God, your story can change also. What is your faith story?

“Faith Sees A Future” – Joseph

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the life of Joseph.

Joseph

The book of Genesis walks through the life of Joseph. He dreams big dreams and his brothers threw him in a pit & then sold him as a slave. He gets falsely accused and thrown in prison. He interprets dreams and becomes second in command in all of Egypt. What can we learn from the life of Joseph, who remained faithful through it all? Can we be as faithful to God, even when our lives aren’t as difficult?

They were marching through the Sinai desert wilderness for 40 years, and they weren’t too happy about it. All through their experience, they cried out in grumbling and complaining before Moses, and before the Lord. We go through only 10 of their major complaints. Does your life reflect more gratitude, or more complaining? As you hear the news each day, do you find yourself grumbling through life? Join us as we discover ways that God sends us the remedy to our complaining life-style.
