Finishing Begins By Starting

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Exodus 3-4.

where_you_areWhen we think of New Year’s Resolutions, we often let fear assist us with failing. We don’t want to set goals, or accomplish success because we let fear capture our hearts. Moses knew a little something about this too. When God gave him a goal to accomplish, Moses tried talking his way out of it, many times. Have you ever been there? God reminds us to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can in order to walk by faith in 2018. Join us this week in discovering God’s bigger purposes for our lives, and you’ll accomplish more as you walk by faith.

Missionary God; The Battle of Kingdoms

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 2.

king.herod-temple copy

Like King Herod, at the birth of Jesus, we resist the Kingdom of God breaking into our world. Sometimes people forget that God doesn’t come into our world like a tyrant and terrorist, but rather God comes near as a offering of peace, like a little child. God’s Kingdom is breaking into this dark world to take over your kingdom of selfishness and pride. Is it possible that we act like King Herod in our resistance to God’s Kingdom also? We need to be like the wisemen who came seeking proximity to Jesus, bringing gifts of worship to the Savior. We all, like King Herod, have gone astray, but God has come for us like only the Missionary God can.

“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?

“Faith Prepares A Way” – Moses, part 1

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Exodus 3.

burning.bush copy

Moses encounters God in the burning bush, but the bush is not consumed. God speaks to Moses about a tremendously ridiculous plan to free the 2 million Hebrews from the hand of Pharaoh, through Moses. Moses isn’t having it. He gives God four excuses, four questions about the plan, to persuade God from moving forward. God isn’t having it, either. Do you struggle with your own identity issues, or validation issues, or legitimacy issues, or even trying to prove God to others? Join us as we talk about the struggling faith of young Moses.

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.

“Faith Requires Sacrifice” – Abraham

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 12.

Abraham

Faith requires sacrifice and obedience. When is the last time the Lord called you to sacrifice something for Him? What is it like to give up something of the flesh, in order to honor the God of faith? We come across so many ways to act out of our flesh, rather than to put aside our desires for the glory of God. Join us as we follow Abraham through his sacrifices in life.

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.
