Jesus Taught Us To Forgive, How’s That Working Out For You?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6:14-15.

Jesus taught us to forgive others, so that the Heavenly Father can forgive us.

Jesus doesn’t ask us how we “feel” about this conditional statement in his sermon on the mount. In fact, most of the Bible doesn’t ask the reader how we feel about what God says. In light of that, how is forgiveness working out in your life? Are you one who holds a grudge? Are you letting the evil stored up in your heart spill out onto others, or are good things spilling out of your life? When God asks us to forgive others who offend us, think politics, think personal offenses, think mistakes made … He is asking our hearts to be in line with His heart, since God forgave us more than we could ever ask.

Let’s put it this way, maybe you only have to forgive others, as much as God as already forgiven you … that’s all. If we can figure out how to forgive, then our capacity to love will be even greater still. Let’s walk in the wholeness and grace of God’s forgiveness, which spills out onto others.

The Lord is asking you and me the same question when it comes to loving our neighbors, “What do you have in your house, to help one another”? You and I have a part to play in helping the gospel of Jesus Christ advance in the world. We work with our neighbors to provide long lasting transformational work in underdeveloped communities. Covenant World Relief is a partner organization with Serve Globally, a wing of the Evangelical Covenant Denomination.

May God Give You Peace

Crossroads Church of Greeley, Colorado

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the end of the priestly blessing.

priestblessinNumbers 6:22-27 speaks of the blessing that God’s priests would say over the people every day. The blessing was given to Moses, from God, for the people to receive and walk in God’s favor. Do you have God’s favor in your life? Do you know the peace of God, not as the world gives, but as only Jesus can give peace? God is gracious and forgiving, kind and compassionate, willing to keep his face toward us, even when we sin. God is the kind of God who gives a blessing before we even deserve it. You can receive the blessing of God on your life today.

Pride Issues Need to Die

Crossroads Church of Greeley

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the issue of Pride.

humility

The church has gotten away with pride for too long. Scripture teaches the Church, quite clearly, to put aside issues of pride. We are to lean on humility and grace. In fact, God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. How are you working on identifying pride in your life, and working on eliminating it from your every day life? God calls us to humility because we cannot both worship God and worship self at the same time. Let’s grow in humility.

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?

A Different Calling in this World

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Peter 2.

dead.faith

God has called you; chosen you; picked you out of a line up, to be different in this dark world. You have the gifts and qualities necessary to meet the needs for someone near you. Open your eyes, and open your hands to serve those around you with the love of Jesus. You don’t have to have all the right words, just serve with an open heart. God will provide a place to serve, when you follow your callings. If God nudges you in life, say yes to his leading. You don’t have to worry about being embarrassed or confused, or afraid, with God in the lead, He will provide the care you need to serve his people. What are you afraid of? Step out in faith.
