Palm Sunday; “How Do We Worship?”

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 19.

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 1.02.26 PMJesus had just come from Zacchaeus’s house where Zach is transformed by the loving grace of Jesus. Then as Jesus walks toward Jerusalem, his disciples secure a donkey for the triumphal entry. They lay down palm branches and their coats as Jesus enters into the city. They praise Jesus and give him their worship. Some reject him and tell Jesus to stop this blasphemy. What would you do? Where is your allegiance to Jesus? Some rejoice over the God of the Universe sending His very Son for our salvation. Some don’t understand at all, and some completely reject the work of God through Jesus. Where do you stand on this issue?

The Right To Be Heard; Acts 28

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 28.

Lighthouse_picPaul the Apostle, is now on the island of Malta where a snake wraps around his hand. He is not overcome by the snake bite, just like we are not overcome by the serpent’s sting of death. Satan has no power over the believer in Jesus Christ. Paul moves to healing everyone on the island, just like ┬áthe beginning of the book of Acts where the Spirit of God is active in healing his people. Then Paul spends 2 more years waiting trial before Caesar in Rome. He speaks to all who would listen. How do you share your faith with others? Do you have the right to be heard in their lives?

Always Be Prepared (Acts 26)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 26.

Acts_lighthouseThe Apostle Paul stands before King Agrippa and gives testimony, once again, about the reason for the hope he has in Christ. It reminds me of 1 Peter 3:15 where Peter writes, “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” When Paul is speaking about his faith in God, he uses gentleness and respect. He wants everyone everywhere to know Jesus. How are you sharing the hope of the gospel of Jesus with people? Does your hope in God become a talking point with others? How can you set apart Christ as Lord in your life?

Don’t Squander Opportunities (Acts 24)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 24.

Acts_Lighthouse.2.pngThe Apostle Paul is held in prison for 2 years after giving the speech of his life to Governor Felix. He says that he believes in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ. Felix keeps him under lock and key but wants to listen to what the wise Apostle has to say about Jesus. Paul shares about the scriptures that he would later write. I wonder if you’re more like the Apostle Paul with people, or more like Governor Felix? Felix only listened when it was convenient. Are you like this?

What Is Your S.T.O.R.Y. & Why Does It Matter? (Acts 22)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 22.

screen-shot-2017-02-20-at-9-01-56-pmWe see that the Apostle Paul is given the opportunity to share his testimony in a public setting. This is Paul giving his defense for why the people shouldn’t kill him. We can learn something from Luke writing Paul’s personal testimony in the book of Acts. We learn to start at the very beginning, tell the truth about your past, offer your life to God, reject your stinking thinking, and your story isn’t for you, anyways. Join us as we learn how to share our testimony of faith with others.
