Not What You Expected

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the surprise at the resurrection of Jesus.

door-closed

We forget that Jesus appeared to women first, at the empty tomb, not to the men. We forget that the first evangelists of the resurrection of Jesus were women, not men. We come to this scene in the Bible and we bring our expectations to it, since we’re removed from it by 2000 years, but if we put ourselves in the scene, our expectations wouldn’t match what really happened. Join us as we visit the scene of Jesus’ resurrection and see that God does so much more than we could expect or even imagine. HAPPY EASTER 2019.

Do You Know What Time It Is?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Palm Sunday.

Palm-Sunday

Luke 19 in the Gospels, is a description of how Jesus the Messiah walked from the Mount of Olives to the city of Jerusalem with people praising him as God. He rode on a donkey which had never been ridden on, and people worshiped Jesus as God. The religious leaders wanted Jesus to rebuke his followers for singing to him. He refused. Then Jesus told them they missed out on the work of God because they didn’t notice the time of God’s coming. Do you know what time it is? Have you recognized the timing of God, to send Jesus to earth as a ransom for your soul. God has made a way to know himself, through Jesus, His only Son. Don’t miss out on the timing of God in your life. Don’t let pride get in the way of you recognizing God’s salvation.

Listen with Care | Ambassadors

Did you know that the way you listen to other people, is a form of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with them?

Honey Sometimes we just walk all over someone’s conversation, waiting to get a word in edgewise when they take a breath, but by listening with care, we have the ability to share the love of God with others. Pastor Reid Olson shares with us some listening techniques taken from the account where Jesus walks with his disciples following the resurrection. You can learn how to listen better to others, so that the love of God is conveyed through your actions.

Your “ONE WORD” for 2019

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Greeley teaches on your “ONE WORD” for 2019.

one.word.for.year

Have you ever concentrated on one word for the day, or for a week, or month, or even a year? We are practicing our one word for a year as a church together. God may be speaking one thing to you for the year, and He might be wanting you to focus on a single attribute of His, or a single thought for the year. We take a look at Philippians 3 and see that Apostle Paul wants us to forget what is behind (in his case, legalism) and press on to what is ahead (our identity in Jesus Christ), and see that God is calling us to lean forward into faith this coming year. What is your one word for the year?

Christmas Carols | AWAY IN A MANGER

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Christmas Carols for Advent season.

Screen Shot 2018-12-26 at 11.22.02 AM

We often sing songs because they are familiar to us. We sing words and listen to the music, but do we take the time to think about the meaning of the lyrics, or the theology represented? In this series, we break down the lyrics and pay attention to what God is trying to tell us today.

Away in a Manger, a nursery rhyme song from Martin Luther regarding the baby Jesus, is catchy, but it’s only about the baby. What if God were trying to tell you more about Himself than Jesus simply remaining a baby? Listen today with a heart that asks God the question, how better would you like me to follow you?

Jesus Breaks Bread With People

Crossroads Church of Greeley http://www.crossroadsgreeley.com

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 2:42-47.

love like jesus

The example of Jesus to the world through the church is through fellowship, gathering, serving and forgiving one another. You can participate in the will of God by eating meals with others. God isn’t asking us to judge the character of another person before having a conversation with them, which is easy to do, God is asking us to fellowship with people so that the light of God might shine more brightly in the world. You have a responsibility to love the world the way Jesus loved the world. You and I can show the love of God by being the light of Christ in relationships and eating meals with others. God expects us not to live life in a bubble away from the world, but to be in the world with those who need God’s love.

What Do You Have In Your House?

Reverend David Husby, Director of Covenant World Relief, teaches on 2 Kings 4:1-7 where Elisha asks the desperate widow, “What do you have in your house”?

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.
