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.

The Priestly Blessing

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “The Priestly Blessing”.

PriestlyBlessingNumbers 6:22-27. What does this Blessing mean and why did God have it said over the Israelites every day for 40 years? You’ve heard the blessing, “May the Lord bless you and keep you, make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, may the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”. When you hear this, do you know the root of the meanings of the verbs? Did you know that the “you” is singular in original Hebrew, not “all y’all”, so it means that God is speaking over individuals. We are exploring the Priestly Blessing over God’s people.

You’re The One With “Control Issues”

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

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “Being Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired”.

Control

We look at the issues of control in the life of the one who follows God. If you have a faith in Jesus, you might know that God calls us to lay down our lives before Him and give up our issues of control & fear. The issues of control come from insecurities and fears. When you let fears rule your life, you don’t give up control to God to work things out. When you trust God with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-8), then you begin to let go of your need for controlling others. Your life actually becomes more filled with peace and joy. What are the things hanging you up as you try to control others around you? How can you learn to give up control, so God can work through you to bless the world a little bit more?

Trust The Puzzle Maker God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Colossians 1:15-22.

puzzle Pieces

If we can trust a puzzle maker to put all the right pieces in a puzzle box, we can surely trust the God of all creation to put our lives together in JESUS. Colossians 1 says that God created the world through Jesus, and that Jesus holds all things together in life. Join us as we hear how God is better than puzzle makers, today. If you life feels like it’s in pieces, then we need to hear from the God of all peace who holds all things together in Jesus.

You Can’t Keep People Pleasing

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the irrational thought of people pleasing.

rules-for-all

We get ourselves into a trap of pleasing others, which eventually makes us compromise our integrity, or sell out, or miss the goals we want to achieve. It’s easy to become a people pleaser if we remain obsessed with what people think about us. But when we embrace the identity that God gives us in Christ, we can live into the beloved child of God that He created. You choose. Keep people pleasing and feel empty, or be a God-pleaser and feel complete.

God Is Not A Short-Order Cook

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on a portion of God’s character.

short-order cookGod doesn’t exist to serve us, we exist to serve God. God is not a short-order cook, granting our every wish. God is more sovereign, more good, more loving and His ways are higher than our ways. When we begin to understand that God’s love will never fail, and God’s presence is always with us, we learn to trust in His glorious power and sovereign will for our lives. Don’t let circumstances sway your view of a Holy God.
