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.

Good Enough, Just Ain’t Good Enough

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Romans 3.

don't have what it takes

Apostle Paul tells us we aren’t good enough, in fact, he says, “all have sinned and fall short of the perfection of God.” Bummer. What does this do to your soul? When we live in a world of trying to be good enough, and we just can’t measure up, we have to submit to “someone” else being good enough for us. Jesus Christ is our salvation. God has called us to know him through faith in the perfect righteousness of Jesus, alone. That’s it. That’s all it takes to be good… having faith in the one who is perfect.

Seeking All the God-Feelings

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on only seeking feels from God.

feelingsDo you find yourself wanting more emotional connection with God? Sometimes we seek after something emotional, or tingly feelings from God, rather than seeking the truth of God’s character. We live in a society now that is so emotionally driven, fake news or real, that we miss what God’s character is really like. Did you know that the Bible is not primarily emotionally satisfying? Did you know that Jesus didn’t ever ask someone how they “felt” about obeying God? God doesn’t ask us how we feel about walking with Him, He expects us to walk by faith.

God Is Not A Short-Order Cook

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on a portion of God’s character.

short-order cookGod doesn’t exist to serve us, we exist to serve God. God is not a short-order cook, granting our every wish. God is more sovereign, more good, more loving and His ways are higher than our ways. When we begin to understand that God’s love will never fail, and God’s presence is always with us, we learn to trust in His glorious power and sovereign will for our lives. Don’t let circumstances sway your view of a Holy God.

Extreme Generosity

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on having a generous mindset, rather than a selfish mindset.

generous

We are born with a sinful, selfish mindset… Me first. It takes a relationship with God, through Jesus, to be more generous and giving in life. When you encounter the living God, you grow in faith and in awareness of others, so much so, that you want to give to others, more than receive from them. What kind of mindset do you have? Are you stingy and selfish, or thoughtful and generous with your giving? We want to grow in God and become generous like his Son, Jesus Christ. This happens when we let the Spirit of God lead our lives and lean more into Godly living.

“Even if . . . “, Daniel 3

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Daniel 3.

fiery-furnace

Hebrews 12:1-3 says to lay aside the things that distract us from God, and run the race marked out for us in faith, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author of our faith, so that we don’t grow weary and lose hope. How do we fix our eyes on Jesus? What sort of things take away our sense of hope? The boys in the story of the fiery furnace in Daniel 3 found themselves up against a rock and a fireplace. They chose to follow God, no matter the cost … “even if”. Can you say that in your life? Even if God doesn’t save me from this situation, I will still trust him.
