Remain Teachable in Leadership (Acts 11)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 11.

lighthouse-3There’s an age old saying, “People like change, until something changes.” Is that true in your life? The Apostle Peter needed to explain his actions from Acts 10, where he went to a Gentile’s home and they received God’s Holy Spirit. He didn’t have to explain the Holy Spirit part, as much as the “going to a Gentile’s home” part. Why? The prejudice of the newly Christian Jews didn’t allow for them to be teachable in leadership. They were restrictive, rather than gracious. When Peter could explain his actions, they were became receptive. Barnabas is a wonderful example of teachability in leading. How teachable are you in leading others? Let’s find out. Click the image to hear the sermon.

Your Obedience Matters (Acts 10)

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

lighthouse-11We see the character of God through our acts of obedience. The Apostle Peter was summoned from Joppa to Caesarea so he could meet with Cornelius and his family. Cornelius was the first Gentile to receive the Holy Spirit and later began a church in that town. The Church of God is moving out of the Jewish community of faith toward the “ends of the earth” through expansion. Join us as look at how our obedience to the Spirit of God matters for issues of living well in the Kingdom of God. How have you put up a wall and excluded people from the Kingdom of God, rather than act in obedience to include more people?

Chasing After The Wild Goose

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 8.

lighthouse-9When the early church faced persecution, they were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Once scattered, the church began preaching the gospel of Jesus and the church began to expand. Often, when we go through something difficult in life, we tend to think God has forgotten about us, or that God isn’t paying attention. What would happen if we changed our perspective about bad things and said, “God has a better plan in mind than I do.”? No matter the difficulties we face, we are challenged to preach the word of God wherever we go. Are you up for the challenge?

Sometimes Christians can clip the wings of the Wild Goose (Holy Spirit) and limit God’s work in the world through our disobedience to Him. When was the last time you responded well to the prompting of the Holy Spirit?

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.

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.

PRAYER; Prayer With A Purpose

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on The Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6.

prayer_patterns

Join us to learn about the Lord’s Purpose for prayer. This is the key to the prayer. When we understand whose Kingdom it is, and whose Will we are serving, then we can understand why we are engaging in prayer altogether. Learning to surrender your will to God the Father regarding His Kingdom helps us to put the entire LORD’S PRAYER into perspective.

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on The Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13.

prayer_patterns

We take a closer look at what it means to make God’s Name holy, or hallowed, and sanctified. What would it take in your life to make God’s Name more Holy to you? How would your prayer life change if you called on the Holy Name of God the Father, more than just rattling off a grocery list of prayer needs to God? How do you engage in relationship with God the Father?
