Sharing Your Faith Without Being A Jerk

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 10.

share

Jesus sends out the 72 followers to go and prepare the cities for his entrance, ahead of him. He tells them to go in peace and eat whatever is set before them. I like this kind of evangelism. Jesus isn’t mean about sharing the Kingdom of God, he sends it out with kindness and peace. How do you share your faith in Jesus? Are you a jerk about it? Do you have to convert people to the faith and make it all about “you”, or can you let the Spirit of God do the work? Listen with us at Crossroads as we practice sharing faith as a spiritual discipline.

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.

Following Jesus; Learning To Pray

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to pray like Jesus.

praying

We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.

Following Jesus; Bible Intake

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Bible Intake as a Spiritual Practice.

bible

What are your spiritual practices that keep you grounded with the Lord Jesus? Do you have a regular reading routine with the Bible? Do you have a Bible reading app? When is your favorite time of day to spend time in God’s Word? Whenever it may be, be sure to continue. Some say, “I don’t know why God feels so far away from me.” and my answer is, “How much time do you spend reading the bible?”

Being Made Right With God; John 20

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being made right with God.

Easter2017_-_Art_HorizThere are so many religions and different views of faith in the world today. How do we know which one is the one to lead us to God? How does one know if a religion is teaching the right doctrine in order to know God personally? We explain this to you in our Easter 2017 sermon, Being Made Right With God. You will enjoy testimony from Michelle Allen also, as she describes her living faith in God. If the resurrection is true, then Christian faith is true.

Palm Sunday; “How Do We Worship?”

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 19.

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 1.02.26 PMJesus had just come from Zacchaeus’s house where Zach is transformed by the loving grace of Jesus. Then as Jesus walks toward Jerusalem, his disciples secure a donkey for the triumphal entry. They lay down palm branches and their coats as Jesus enters into the city. They praise Jesus and give him their worship. Some reject him and tell Jesus to stop this blasphemy. What would you do? Where is your allegiance to Jesus? Some rejoice over the God of the Universe sending His very Son for our salvation. Some don’t understand at all, and some completely reject the work of God through Jesus. Where do you stand on this issue?

The Right To Be Heard; Acts 28

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 28.

Lighthouse_picPaul the Apostle, is now on the island of Malta where a snake wraps around his hand. He is not overcome by the snake bite, just like we are not overcome by the serpent’s sting of death. Satan has no power over the believer in Jesus Christ. Paul moves to healing everyone on the island, just like ┬áthe beginning of the book of Acts where the Spirit of God is active in healing his people. Then Paul spends 2 more years waiting trial before Caesar in Rome. He speaks to all who would listen. How do you share your faith with others? Do you have the right to be heard in their lives?
