You’re The One With “Control Issues”

Crossroads Church of Greeley, Colorado http://www.crossroadsgreeley.com

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “Being Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired”.

Control

We look at the issues of control in the life of the one who follows God. If you have a faith in Jesus, you might know that God calls us to lay down our lives before Him and give up our issues of control & fear. The issues of control come from insecurities and fears. When you let fears rule your life, you don’t give up control to God to work things out. When you trust God with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-8), then you begin to let go of your need for controlling others. Your life actually becomes more filled with peace and joy. What are the things hanging you up as you try to control others around you? How can you learn to give up control, so God can work through you to bless the world a little bit more?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on BEING DIFFERENT.

bike-crash

God has called His people to a different kind of life than the world. The Apostle Peter tells us throughout 1 Peter, that we are foreigners living in a world that is not our home. How do you look at trials differently than the world looks at trials? We all face terrible things in our lives, but as followers of Jesus, we are called to respond differently. How is your faith being proved genuine?

Trust The Puzzle Maker God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Colossians 1:15-22.

puzzle Pieces

If we can trust a puzzle maker to put all the right pieces in a puzzle box, we can surely trust the God of all creation to put our lives together in JESUS. Colossians 1 says that God created the world through Jesus, and that Jesus holds all things together in life. Join us as we hear how God is better than puzzle makers, today. If you life feels like it’s in pieces, then we need to hear from the God of all peace who holds all things together in Jesus.

When You Can’t Control The Future

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 12 when Abram was called to leave his country, his people and his father’s household.

Do you struggle with trying to determine the future, so you can make all the right choices? I do too. I know what it’s like to want to know the outcome before the beginning. I imagine some of you feel stuck when you can’t tell what’s right ahead. God calls us to trust Him more than trust our own instinct. There’s a reason Jesus calls disciples to follow him. He knows where he’s going, and better yet, he knows where to lead us where we are going. You’re going to want to listen to this one twice. Sometimes we need to heed God’s wisdom in the direction of our life, rather than make all of our own decisions.

You Can’t Keep People Pleasing

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the irrational thought of people pleasing.

rules-for-all

We get ourselves into a trap of pleasing others, which eventually makes us compromise our integrity, or sell out, or miss the goals we want to achieve. It’s easy to become a people pleaser if we remain obsessed with what people think about us. But when we embrace the identity that God gives us in Christ, we can live into the beloved child of God that He created. You choose. Keep people pleasing and feel empty, or be a God-pleaser and feel complete.
