Your Story Matters to God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 8:1-15.

seeds copyThe parable of the farmer sowing seeds is a favorite parable for many. You have a story to tell about how God is working in your life, and as you tell your story, you share the love of God with others. God has you in the right place, at this right time, for God’s kingdom purposes. Don’t squander this life for yourself, rather, make your life accessible to God’s use. How well do you share your faith with others?

Working With God, Instead of For God

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 9:1-8.

 

four friends copyThe story of the man healed from paralysis is fascinating. We sometimes mistake it for a simple story of healing, which isn’t ever simple. But this miracle takes a turn and God brings forgiveness along with healing. This is called Shalom in the Bible, God’s salvation (Shalom) is more than peace, it is a wholeness of forgiveness, healing and making things right in the world. Jesus uses this moment in this young man’s life to point others to God. The friends who brought the young man to Jesus were rewarded for their faith. Those who opposed Jesus were dumb founded by his authority from God the Father. All in all this is a wonderful teaching on working with God, instead of for God. Do you understand the difference? Click the link below, and follow along.

Seeing Through God’s Eyes

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 9.

blind.healing

The healing of the blind man is more than a miracle healing, it is an example of the God of all Creation working to create the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ the Messiah. Jesus is the light of the world, and by healing the man born blind, he is bringing God’s light of healing and restoration into our world. Those that opposed this man’s healing testimony, his neighbors, the religious leaders, and even his parents, were caught in a vortex of blame and accusations against the healing, rather than seeing God through who Jesus is. Don’t become blind in this process of blame, rather become seeing through the miracle of Jesus redemption in the world.

A Faith That Remains Focused

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 14.

Share-Your-Story copyJesus walking on water is one infamous miracle story. The disciples were in a boat, surrounded by a storm, some 3.5 miles off shore, and Jesus comes walking by. Have you ever felt alone in your faith? Have you ever been so scared of the circumstances around you, that you’d do almost anything to make the storm stop? Have you ever wanted faith like Peter, who stepped out on to the water to walk toward Jesus? When Jesus rebuked Peter for taking his eyes off of Christ, we take that as a chastisement from Jesus. What if that meant that at least Peter had some faith to begin with, and he had room to grow? Join us in this sermon about the miracle of keeping our faith in focus amidst the storms in life.

Writing as Spiritual Discipline

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on writing as spiritual practice of faith.

Journaling copyWhere do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don’t neglect writing.
