Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches Acts 3. The healing of the lame beggar man takes precedent in the narrative, but what happens around the event is astounding. The healing took place “outside” the temple gate. The impact of this means that God’s Kingdom work is beginning to move outside the temple walls. God’s Kingdom is on the move, like lava moving down a mountain; no one can contain it’s flow. We learn through Acts 3 that God’s Spirit is on the move and He brings healing, wholeness and joy as a result. Acts 3:19 says when we repent of our sin, times of refreshing will come from God. I hope you find your times of refreshing when you walk away from your sin-filled life.

We have lost enough battles to over fear, but we cannot lose the war. You don’t have to live a life of fear any longer. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and a sound mind. It’s time to use that sound mind to overcome fear in life. Fear grows when we give it power. You no longer need to be afraid. Stand courageous before the Lord and let His grace empower you.
Samson came on the scene around 1300 BC, when Israel was being oppressed by the Philistines. Samson’s life is not one to emulate today.

We have important work to do, and sometimes we think we’re not good enough, or we’re not worthy, or we have messed up too far, so God would dare think me useful. Join us for a conversation on God’s intent with you, and become pleasantly surprised that He has grand plans for your life, and for HIs Kingdom, which includes your life.
Why do bad things happen to good people? This question has been pondered for centuries, and sometimes we don’t have the answers. We tend to put God in a box and make him answer for the circumstances of life, which leads to doubting our faith. Maybe God isn’t to blame at all. Join us to discover the important truths about why God allows bad things to happen.
Too often we believe the lies from the devil that we’re not good enough, that we’re not strong enough, that we just can’t change the way we are. None of these lies are true, but we can be tricked into believing them to be true. Follow along with us as we look at 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 at how the Apostle Paul speaks to us about “weakness” rather than strength, which glorifies God.
