Share Your Story | Ambassadors

Pastor Reid teaches on How to Share Your Story of faith with others. It’s not that complicated at all.Screen Shot 2019-02-26 at 4.40.55 PM

Following the pattern of John 1:34-46, we see that Andrew found his brother Simon (Peter), and told him what he knew of Jesus, and brought him to Jesus. We are adapting a biblical principle of FIND, TELL, BRING to share our faith with others. You will learn to help people find and follow Jesus when you find someone you love, tell them what you know of God, and bring them along in their faith. We want your experience of sharing God with others to be a simple and friendly as that.

How To Bless, as Ambassadors

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

Screen Shot 2019-02-12 at 4.34.16 PMPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley. At Crossroads Church we are learning what it means to be ambassadors for Christ. Jesus articulated the values he expected every one of his followers to possess. He made it clear that God’s Kingdom values are radically different from the values of the world. God wants His ambassadors to demonstrate humility, sorrow over sin, gentleness, a hunger for purity, a desire to relieve suffering, a devotion to peace, and a willingness to endure persecution for doing what is right. A leader who wants to follow Jesus and represent God’s attributes in the world will seek His values. Do you have these qualities? Will you be an ambassador for God in the world?

Who Is In Control? | Ambassadors

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

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on God being in control of our lives.

ambassadorsWe often encounter people who want control over us, or want to manipulate us. Even Jesus experienced the Apostle Peter, who tried to stop Jesus’ mission of going to Jerusalem to die for the sins of the world. Did Peter really try to derail God’s plan? No. He just didn’t want Jesus to be killed. Peter, however, didn’t know the bigger plan of God for the world. We can act like this sometimes. We can get in the way of another person, or other people can get in the way of God’s mission in our lives. How do we learn to articulate our calling from God and live into the purposes of God, while letting God have control? Join us to find out.

Re-framing Your Thinking | Mindset

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

battle of the mindPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on reframing your mindset to think the things of God, rather than be trapped by our own wrong habitual way of thinking. The Apostle Paul tells us to reshape our thinking, so we think the thoughts of God. We often get trapped in “stinking thinking” and get our minds all wrapped around some false way of self destruction. God wants so much more for us in Jesus. You have the capacity to re-calibrate your own thinking to get out of the ditches, and move into the space of freedom that God desires for you. Won’t you choose to elevate your thinking.

Basic Training | Mindset

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on basic training for the mind.

brain trainMany people live with a negative mindset, and this stems from negative self talk. When we constantly barrage our mind with negativity, we will be sure to live it out in our behavior. But there’s a good solution. You can rewire the neural pathways in your mind from negative to positive thoughts. We learn to replace the constantly critical statements in our mind, with biblical truth from God’s Word, write it down, think it, say it aloud, then we’ll begin to believe it.

Your “ONE WORD” for 2019

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Greeley teaches on your “ONE WORD” for 2019.

one.word.for.year

Have you ever concentrated on one word for the day, or for a week, or month, or even a year? We are practicing our one word for a year as a church together. God may be speaking one thing to you for the year, and He might be wanting you to focus on a single attribute of His, or a single thought for the year. We take a look at Philippians 3 and see that Apostle Paul wants us to forget what is behind (in his case, legalism) and press on to what is ahead (our identity in Jesus Christ), and see that God is calling us to lean forward into faith this coming year. What is your one word for the year?

Christmas Carols | AWAY IN A MANGER

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Christmas Carols for Advent season.

Screen Shot 2018-12-26 at 11.22.02 AM

We often sing songs because they are familiar to us. We sing words and listen to the music, but do we take the time to think about the meaning of the lyrics, or the theology represented? In this series, we break down the lyrics and pay attention to what God is trying to tell us today.

Away in a Manger, a nursery rhyme song from Martin Luther regarding the baby Jesus, is catchy, but it’s only about the baby. What if God were trying to tell you more about Himself than Jesus simply remaining a baby? Listen today with a heart that asks God the question, how better would you like me to follow you?
