Following Jesus; Learning To Pray

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to pray like Jesus.

praying

We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.

Following Jesus; Bible Intake

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Bible Intake as a Spiritual Practice.

bible

What are your spiritual practices that keep you grounded with the Lord Jesus? Do you have a regular reading routine with the Bible? Do you have a Bible reading app? When is your favorite time of day to spend time in God’s Word? Whenever it may be, be sure to continue. Some say, “I don’t know why God feels so far away from me.” and my answer is, “How much time do you spend reading the bible?”

Following Jesus; One Step At a Time

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on spiritual disciplines.

follow_Jesus_one

We need something to calibrate our compass of faith, once in a while. We need to ground ourselves in the ways of Jesus so that we get to know Him and become more like Him in our daily walk with God. It’s one thing to “know God”, but another thing entirely to practice the steps of faith that draw us closer in relationship with Jesus. We overview the series in this talk about following Jesus; one step at a time.

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?

Take Initiative Where You Lead (Acts 27)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 27.

LIGHTHOUSE

Paul is being transported from Caesarea to Rome on a ship in the sea. The course of the journey takes the boat through the Adriatic Sea where the boat meets it’s fate against the storm. What are the storms in your life? How do you face difficulties when they come upon you? Do you have your faith in God to get you through the storm, or do you try to take control from God? How are you leading with faith over your fears? Join us this week as we look at how God is with us in the storms of life.

Keep Your Focus On Jesus (Acts 23)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 23.

acts_lighthouse-3We are now into the thick of the trial over the Apostle Paul’s testimony to the Jews. He stands before the Sanhedrin to give reason for the faith he believes. He believes in the resurrection from the dead, including the afterlife. The Sadducees disagree and want him dead. Paul’s nephew saves the day with a little obedience to God in telling Paul about the plot to kill him. He tells the commander of the guard and Paul’s life is spared. What are some of the hurdles in faith that you can’t seem to overcome? Do you have obstacles in your life, self-inflicted, or otherwise, that keep you from enjoying the grace of God. Join us as we talk about legalism and overcoming the obstacles of our faith.

Jesus; The Everlasting Father

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Isaiah 9:6.

christmas_2016-copyJesus shall be called The Everlasting Father, upon his birth. No one is a father when they are born. In fact, Jesus never married and didn’t father any children, so how could he be called the Everlasting Father? We look into this spiritual nickname for Jesus given by the prophet Isaiah as we look at the role of God the Father in the life of Jesus. Jesus is the exact representation of the Father God. In Jesus we see all the qualities of God the Father, compassion, justice, generosity, gracious care. Join us as we look at the attributes of God the Father in Jesus.
