Jesus teaches us to replace worry with worship. Seek first, the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you. How do you practice worship? What are your best practices when it comes to overcoming the mess of this world? On this Mother’s Day we come to celebrate the gift of Worship and focus on worship in Spirit and in Truth.

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 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 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.

dark-side

Don’t take this one on alone. You need God’s spiritual authority to defeat the enemy. Many people don’t believe the devil and his demons even exist, but the Scriptures clearly teach that evil was cast out of people, Jesus came to defeat the power of death and Satan, and we can be free from the dominion of darkness. Join us to find out how demons work, what they do, and how to stand victorious in Jesus Christ.

What Does God Think About Money?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Timothy 6:5-10.

money

God’s view of money and consumerism is different than our view in North America. You might think that the Bible doesn’t have much to say about money, but you’d be sorely mistaken. Money is a topic of interest to God for his people, as much, or more than you may think. Join us as we talk about God’s perspective of money and spending.
