Identity Theft: When You’re Just Not Good Enough

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 2 Peter 1:3-4.

God’s divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness. You are not worthy on your own, but God makes you worthy, God makes you whole, God makes you good enough. Sometimes we feel inadequate to accomplish the calling God has for us, in our own power, but with God’s power, we can do everything in Christ. Join us for a lesson in what God thinks of you.

Identity Theft; “I Gotta Be Stronger”

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the lie from the devil that says, “You have to be stronger in life to get your life together.”


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.

So what’s next?

Syria and the U.S.A. are at the brink of war. 

Racism marches on, after celebrating 50 public anniversaries (and more) to end it.Image

20 yr old, privileged white-girls continue exploring their sexual identity through public media expression on a global-stage, while culture becomes inoculated, lowering a national-level of “shock”.

How is “anything” surprising anymore?

So, what’s next?

I am reminded again, today, God’s Word remains true.

Psalms 46 (NIV) reminds me that God is our refuge & strength.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.


We wage war, not in the flesh, but in the Spirit.

The enemy battles for our soul.

Do not surrender to the “world”, the “flesh”, or the “devil”.

God is for you, who then can be against you?
