Jesus Loved People By Serving

Crossroads Greeley Church

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 13:1-17. wash feet

The arguments ensued among the disciples on that night when Jesus was betrayed, the disagreement was about who was the greatest among them. Can you imagine that kind of bickering in the presence of Jesus? And Jesus didn’t talk them down, or stop the argument with words, he simply poured water into a bowl and started washing the feet of the proud disciples. You want to save your marriage? Serve your spouse. You want to grow a friendship? Serve someone. Do you want to love like Jesus? Serve people. The best way to stop an argument is to serve someone. The best way to grow a church is to serve someone. The best way to grow your faith is by serving others. Serving starts with an attitude of care for others, then the actions follow. Give it a try. You just might grow up in your faith, and start to be more like Jesus.

Jesus Taught Us To Forgive, How’s That Working Out For You?

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6:14-15.

Jesus taught us to forgive others, so that the Heavenly Father can forgive us.

Jesus doesn’t ask us how we “feel” about this conditional statement in his sermon on the mount. In fact, most of the Bible doesn’t ask the reader how we feel about what God says. In light of that, how is forgiveness working out in your life? Are you one who holds a grudge? Are you letting the evil stored up in your heart spill out onto others, or are good things spilling out of your life? When God asks us to forgive others who offend us, think politics, think personal offenses, think mistakes made … He is asking our hearts to be in line with His heart, since God forgave us more than we could ever ask.

Let’s put it this way, maybe you only have to forgive others, as much as God as already forgiven you … that’s all. If we can figure out how to forgive, then our capacity to love will be even greater still. Let’s walk in the wholeness and grace of God’s forgiveness, which spills out onto others.

The Lord is asking you and me the same question when it comes to loving our neighbors, “What do you have in your house, to help one another”? You and I have a part to play in helping the gospel of Jesus Christ advance in the world. We work with our neighbors to provide long lasting transformational work in underdeveloped communities. Covenant World Relief is a partner organization with Serve Globally, a wing of the Evangelical Covenant Denomination.

May God Give You Peace

Crossroads Church of Greeley, Colorado

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the end of the priestly blessing.

priestblessinNumbers 6:22-27 speaks of the blessing that God’s priests would say over the people every day. The blessing was given to Moses, from God, for the people to receive and walk in God’s favor. Do you have God’s favor in your life? Do you know the peace of God, not as the world gives, but as only Jesus can give peace? God is gracious and forgiving, kind and compassionate, willing to keep his face toward us, even when we sin. God is the kind of God who gives a blessing before we even deserve it. You can receive the blessing of God on your life today.

The Priestly Blessing

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “The Priestly Blessing”.

PriestlyBlessingNumbers 6:22-27. What does this Blessing mean and why did God have it said over the Israelites every day for 40 years? You’ve heard the blessing, “May the Lord bless you and keep you, make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, may the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”. When you hear this, do you know the root of the meanings of the verbs? Did you know that the “you” is singular in original Hebrew, not “all y’all”, so it means that God is speaking over individuals. We are exploring the Priestly Blessing over God’s people.

Pride Issues Need to Die

Crossroads Church of Greeley

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the issue of Pride.

humility

The church has gotten away with pride for too long. Scripture teaches the Church, quite clearly, to put aside issues of pride. We are to lean on humility and grace. In fact, God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. How are you working on identifying pride in your life, and working on eliminating it from your every day life? God calls us to humility because we cannot both worship God and worship self at the same time. Let’s grow in humility.
