A Different Calling in this World

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Peter 2.

dead.faith

God has called you; chosen you; picked you out of a line up, to be different in this dark world. You have the gifts and qualities necessary to meet the needs for someone near you. Open your eyes, and open your hands to serve those around you with the love of Jesus. You don’t have to have all the right words, just serve with an open heart. God will provide a place to serve, when you follow your callings. If God nudges you in life, say yes to his leading. You don’t have to worry about being embarrassed or confused, or afraid, with God in the lead, He will provide the care you need to serve his people. What are you afraid of? Step out in faith.

A Different Value Standard

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Peter.

slippery

The culture says to “go with the flow”, “let it ride”, “don’t ruffle feathers”. When it comes to living like the culture, the enemy wrote the book on how to “fit in” without making waves. Wouldn’t the enemy of our soul just love to see us not be different from the world? He’s a jerk. God, however, calls us to live differently from the culture. We have a calling to live HOLY and wholly different from society.

We are being transformed into the image and likeness of Jesus, so therefore, we are called to not emulate the behavior of the world. It’s important to get the order of things right, however. We don’t act with ethical and moral values to earn God’s favor, we already have God limitless favor, therefore we act in accordance to God’s Holy Standard. “But I’m not like other people,” you may say. Well, the standard isn’t “other people”, the standard is God’s holiness.

Faith in Trials; 1 Peter

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on BEING DIFFERENT.

bike-crash

God has called His people to a different kind of life than the world. The Apostle Peter tells us throughout 1 Peter, that we are foreigners living in a world that is not our home. How do you look at trials differently than the world looks at trials? We all face terrible things in our lives, but as followers of Jesus, we are called to respond differently. How is your faith being proved genuine?

seek-wisdom

Pastor Julia speaks on Proverbs 3:1-12 where the writer of wisdom compels us to obedience, trust, giving, and discipline from the Lord. Where do you stand with walking in obedience to the Lord, or learning to trust God more for the details of your life, or learning to give as God compels you, or even living under submission to the Lord’s discipline? You won’t want to miss this teaching from Pastor Julia on how we walk in upright living before God.

When You Can’t Control The Future

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 12 when Abram was called to leave his country, his people and his father’s household.

Do you struggle with trying to determine the future, so you can make all the right choices? I do too. I know what it’s like to want to know the outcome before the beginning. I imagine some of you feel stuck when you can’t tell what’s right ahead. God calls us to trust Him more than trust our own instinct. There’s a reason Jesus calls disciples to follow him. He knows where he’s going, and better yet, he knows where to lead us where we are going. You’re going to want to listen to this one twice. Sometimes we need to heed God’s wisdom in the direction of our life, rather than make all of our own decisions.
