Leaders Are Learners

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. wisdom.spiritualPeople with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, “How do you know if the Bible is true?” “Why would you put your faith into some God you can’t see?” Billy Graham said, “You can’t see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true.” People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.

Writing as Spiritual Discipline

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on writing as spiritual practice of faith.

Journaling copyWhere do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don’t neglect writing.

Being Quiet Enough To Listen

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on silence as a spiritual discipline.  How often do you take the time to be quiet and listen to the speaking of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we can get away from others long enough to be quiet for a moment. We need to learn to be still before the Lord. To be quiet and practice solitude is something that builds our faith, grows our confidence in the Lord, gives us strength to carry on through the hard times, and lets us rest in the trust that God will provide. Where are you in your practice of silence and solitude?  Click here for the sermon.

Following Jesus; Financial Stewardship

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Philippians 4:18-19.

stewardship

What does it mean for our lives in faith when we give financially to the work of the Lord? Do you have a spiritual practice of giving a portion of your finances to the local church? Do you give with joy, or reluctantly? Do you give on a regular basis, or only when you can afford to give? What would it look like for you to begin practicing financial giving on a regular schedule and with an increasing amount each year? Do you know that the Lord will bless you when you give as a spiritual discipline? It’s true.

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.

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.
