Christmas Carols | AWAY IN A MANGER

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Christmas Carols for Advent season.

We often sing songs because they are familiar to us. We sing words and listen to the music, but do we take the time to think about the meaning of the lyrics, or the theology represented? In this series, we break down the lyrics and pay attention to what God is trying to tell us today.

Away in a Manger, a nursery rhyme song from Martin Luther regarding the baby Jesus, is catchy, but it’s only about the baby. What if God were trying to tell you more about Himself than Jesus simply remaining a baby? Listen today with a heart that asks God the question, how better would you like me to follow you?

Oh Come All Ye Faithful

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Christmas Carol;

Oh-Come-All-Ye-Faithful-1-1

Oh Come All Ye Faithful. Sometimes we don’t feel very faithful, or very joyful or triumphant in our walk with God. There are even more people who don’t even feel like coming to God to approach Him. What do we do to move beyond our feelings about not approaching God? Can there be a better solution than ignoring God’s call? God sent His only Son, Jesus, to be born in Bethlehem, in an animal stable of all things, and God invited the lowly shepherds to the party first. What a better picture of God reaching out to those of us who don’t feel faithful, joyful or triumphant in life. God wants you. God came for you. Won’t you come to Bethlehem to see this one, born king of the angels? God is waiting for you to come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.

Jesus Loved People By Serving

Crossroads Greeley Church

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 13:1-17. wash feet

The arguments ensued among the disciples on that night when Jesus was betrayed, the disagreement was about who was the greatest among them. Can you imagine that kind of bickering in the presence of Jesus? And Jesus didn’t talk them down, or stop the argument with words, he simply poured water into a bowl and started washing the feet of the proud disciples. You want to save your marriage? Serve your spouse. You want to grow a friendship? Serve someone. Do you want to love like Jesus? Serve people. The best way to stop an argument is to serve someone. The best way to grow a church is to serve someone. The best way to grow your faith is by serving others. Serving starts with an attitude of care for others, then the actions follow. Give it a try. You just might grow up in your faith, and start to be more like Jesus.

The Priestly Blessing

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “The Priestly Blessing”.

PriestlyBlessingNumbers 6:22-27. What does this Blessing mean and why did God have it said over the Israelites every day for 40 years? You’ve heard the blessing, “May the Lord bless you and keep you, make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, may the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”. When you hear this, do you know the root of the meanings of the verbs? Did you know that the “you” is singular in original Hebrew, not “all y’all”, so it means that God is speaking over individuals. We are exploring the Priestly Blessing over God’s people.

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?

Seeking Godly Wisdom; Pastor Julia Sandstrom

Pastor Julia Sandstrom of Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada steps in for Pastor Reid Olson at Crossroads Church of Greeley.

seek-wisdom

Pastor Julia speaks on Proverbs 3:1-12 where the writer of wisdom compels us to obedience, trust, giving, and discipline from the Lord. Where do you stand with walking in obedience to the Lord, or learning to trust God more for the details of your life, or learning to give as God compels you, or even living under submission to the Lord’s discipline? You won’t want to miss this teaching from Pastor Julia on how we walk in upright living before God.
