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.

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?

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.

The woman at the well encountering Jesus is a famous event in the Gospels. Jesus rescues her from broken relationships and from dipping her bucket into a well void of life, and provides her living water with spiritual springs that will never run dry. He takes time to share with her a new identity in worship, and then releases her to share with her town that Messiah has come. The town is receptive and she becomes known as the first missionary to tell others about Jesus. Join us in finding out how to share your story of rescue, rehabilitation and release.

Being Quiet Enough To Listen

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on silence as a spiritual discipline.  How often do you take the time to be quiet and listen to the speaking of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we can get away from others long enough to be quiet for a moment. We need to learn to be still before the Lord. To be quiet and practice solitude is something that builds our faith, grows our confidence in the Lord, gives us strength to carry on through the hard times, and lets us rest in the trust that God will provide. Where are you in your practice of silence and solitude?  Click here for the sermon.

Fasting From Food, On Purpose

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6:16-18.fasting2

What is it like to fast from food for a meal, for a few meals, for a few days? What’s the purpose of fasting? What are people supposed to accomplish through this ancient practice of spiritual growth? Some people skip a meal in the week because they are too busy to eat. Some skip a meal because they’re trying to lose weight. Some skip meals because of lack of income, or lack of convenience, but skipping a meal on purpose for the sake of godliness is an entirely different reason. Join us this week as we look at the benefits of fasting in order to grow your faith.
