“Faith Sees A Future” – Joseph

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the life of Joseph.

Joseph

The book of Genesis walks through the life of Joseph. He dreams big dreams and his brothers threw him in a pit & then sold him as a slave. He gets falsely accused and thrown in prison. He interprets dreams and becomes second in command in all of Egypt. What can we learn from the life of Joseph, who remained faithful through it all? Can we be as faithful to God, even when our lives aren’t as difficult?

They were marching through the Sinai desert wilderness for 40 years, and they weren’t too happy about it. All through their experience, they cried out in grumbling and complaining before Moses, and before the Lord. We go through only 10 of their major complaints. Does your life reflect more gratitude, or more complaining? As you hear the news each day, do you find yourself grumbling through life? Join us as we discover ways that God sends us the remedy to our complaining life-style.

Sacrificial Faith As Offering; Cain & Abel

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 4.

cain-abel

Cain kills his brother Abel at the beginning of time. Since sin crept into the garden with Adam & Eve, it continues to creep through the lives of everyone. Sin was evident in the first murder in history also. Cain’s offering wasn’t acceptable to God for some reason, but his brother’s was acceptable. What do you do when you get jealous? How do you respond with you don’t feel favored? Do you lash out and kill others around you, even with a look? We can all act like one of these two brothers. Hebrews 11 leads us to believe that faith is the evidence of things hoped for and assurance of things unseen. How do you grow your faith when you’re challenged by competition? In our world of competition and jealousy, God gives us a third way of faith. Join us in Hebrews 11 as we grow in faith.

Your Story Matters to God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 8:1-15.

seeds copyThe parable of the farmer sowing seeds is a favorite parable for many. You have a story to tell about how God is working in your life, and as you tell your story, you share the love of God with others. God has you in the right place, at this right time, for God’s kingdom purposes. Don’t squander this life for yourself, rather, make your life accessible to God’s use. How well do you share your faith with others?

Working With God, Instead of For God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 9:1-8.

 

four friends copyThe story of the man healed from paralysis is fascinating. We sometimes mistake it for a simple story of healing, which isn’t ever simple. But this miracle takes a turn and God brings forgiveness along with healing. This is called Shalom in the Bible, God’s salvation (Shalom) is more than peace, it is a wholeness of forgiveness, healing and making things right in the world. Jesus uses this moment in this young man’s life to point others to God. The friends who brought the young man to Jesus were rewarded for their faith. Those who opposed Jesus were dumb founded by his authority from God the Father. All in all this is a wonderful teaching on working with God, instead of for God. Do you understand the difference? Click the link below, and follow along.

Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 4.

Share-Your-Story1 copy

The woman at the well encountering Jesus is a famous event in the Gospels. Jesus rescues her from broken relationships and from dipping her bucket into a well void of life, and provides her living water with spiritual springs that will never run dry. He takes time to share with her a new identity in worship, and then releases her to share with her town that Messiah has come. The town is receptive and she becomes known as the first missionary to tell others about Jesus. Join us in finding out how to share your story of rescue, rehabilitation and release.
