The Liability of Labels

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Liability of Labels.

labels-wordleLabels in our lives, have a way of keeping us down, or projecting us forward. We can either believe the bad labels and live down to them, or live up to new good labels. How is it working out in your life? Do the labels of your past haunt you and keep you stuck, or can you believe the good labels you’ve been given in Christ and move forward? God used a woman in the Bible named Rahab, to show us that your life can change.

How We Overcome Apathy

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the evils of apathy, within each of us.

Screen Shot 2019-05-07 at 6.14.16 PM

Sometimes we get caught up thinking that our little bit of faith is not enough to change the world. Sometime we think we need to solve EVERYTHING, so we miss out on being a solution in one small thing. We can even post about things we hear around the world, and yet not even be involved in helping our neighbor. How would you have heard the parable of the Good Samaritan back in the day when Jesus told this lawyer how to love his neighbor? What kind of response does it call out in you? Are you an apathetic person regarding your faith?

Not What You Expected

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the surprise at the resurrection of Jesus.

door-closed

We forget that Jesus appeared to women first, at the empty tomb, not to the men. We forget that the first evangelists of the resurrection of Jesus were women, not men. We come to this scene in the Bible and we bring our expectations to it, since we’re removed from it by 2000 years, but if we put ourselves in the scene, our expectations wouldn’t match what really happened. Join us as we visit the scene of Jesus’ resurrection and see that God does so much more than we could expect or even imagine. HAPPY EASTER 2019.

Permission to Say “NO”

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Sabbath Principle from Exodus 20.

Screen Shot 2019-04-09 at 3.10.13 PMHave you ever thought of the 10 Commandments as a gift? God wanted the former 400 years of slavery in Egypt to be removed from His peoples’ thinking, so God gave them a Sabbath Principle. Remember the Sabbath day, and make it holy. How do you remember the Sabbath day in your life? And, how do you make it holy unto God? Do you have sabbath practices that break your chains of slavery? What are you enslaved to in your life? Cookies, caffeine, sugar, shopping, entertainment and even working can become a slave driver in our lives, I know that even ministry (heaven forbid) can become an idol for me. This week we want you to learn to rest, and trust that the God who made you doesn’t make mistakes, and He wants you to rest in Jesus and trust that the world will continue to spin without you holding the steering wheel. Learn to take a weekly sabbath to rest in God’s grace.

Share Your Story | Ambassadors

Pastor Reid teaches on How to Share Your Story of faith with others. It’s not that complicated at all.Screen Shot 2019-02-26 at 4.40.55 PM

Following the pattern of John 1:34-46, we see that Andrew found his brother Simon (Peter), and told him what he knew of Jesus, and brought him to Jesus. We are adapting a biblical principle of FIND, TELL, BRING to share our faith with others. You will learn to help people find and follow Jesus when you find someone you love, tell them what you know of God, and bring them along in their faith. We want your experience of sharing God with others to be a simple and friendly as that.

How To Bless, as Ambassadors

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

Screen Shot 2019-02-12 at 4.34.16 PMPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley. At Crossroads Church we are learning what it means to be ambassadors for Christ. Jesus articulated the values he expected every one of his followers to possess. He made it clear that God’s Kingdom values are radically different from the values of the world. God wants His ambassadors to demonstrate humility, sorrow over sin, gentleness, a hunger for purity, a desire to relieve suffering, a devotion to peace, and a willingness to endure persecution for doing what is right. A leader who wants to follow Jesus and represent God’s attributes in the world will seek His values. Do you have these qualities? Will you be an ambassador for God in the world?

God’s Peace in Your Life | Mindset

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to have peace from God.

sunyu-394123-unsplashPaul, the Apostle, teaches people they can have peace with God. When we are anxious, we are to give our anxiety to God through prayer petitions and offerings to God. We can learn to no longer be anxious about anything, but in everything, in every way, give your thoughts to God and He will guard your hearts and minds in God’s understanding of Peace. Wouldn’t it be nice to stop worrying about things we can’t control anyways? Wouldn’t it be something to be able to not fret over money, or time, or upcoming events? There is a way to learn the Peace of God for every situation.
