Leaders Are Learners

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. wisdom.spiritualPeople with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, “How do you know if the Bible is true?” “Why would you put your faith into some God you can’t see?” Billy Graham said, “You can’t see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true.” People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.

Writing as Spiritual Discipline

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on writing as spiritual practice of faith.

Journaling copyWhere do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don’t neglect writing.

The Death of Contentment

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on quitting on comparison.

comparingComparison is a killer. It kills your joy, it kills relationships, it kills marriages, it kills your purposes in the world. Why? Comparison is an open admission to God that you’re not happy with who He made you to be, and you wish you were like someone else. There may be something called healthy competition, or challenge to grow stronger, but the negative side of challenge is comparison. Don’t compare yourself to others, it leads only to pride, or to resentment.

Quit Making Excuses

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on quitting.

quit_work copy

Quit making excuses about things in your life that are too difficult to accomplish, or too challenge to take on. You don’t need to keep making excuses, because no one cares how good your excuses are. Jesus tells a story in Luke 14 where people give excuses instead of coming to the Master’s banquet. He is saying that our excuses have no place in the Kingdom of God. In order to grow in faith, we need to quit making excuses.

Is God Concerned With My Happiness?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on debunking the myth of the “Health & Wealth, Prosperity Gospel”.

Urban LegendsThe question goes; “If God wants me to be happy, and I’m not happy, then did God fail me?” What happens when we don’t get our prayers answered the way we want them? What happens when I don’t get the material possessions I wanted, but I have the faith to believe I should get them? What kind of depth of faith do we have if we haven’t yet learned to suffer through the hard times? God has something more for each one of us, and maybe that means not getting the happiness we seek. Join us for this sermon on debunking the myth of the prosperity gospel.

Samson_Art

Samson lived a sorted life.

He was a womanizer and never got a grip on his sin.

He fell to the same habits of sinful living over and over and over again.

What can we learn on this Father’s Day about walking in the ways of faith, rather than slipping down the slope of sinful repetition? Join us as we discover the faithful way to live, through the poor example of Samson.
