Leaders Are Learners

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. wisdom.spiritualPeople with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, “How do you know if the Bible is true?” “Why would you put your faith into some God you can’t see?” Billy Graham said, “You can’t see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true.” People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.

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.

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.

Sharing Your Faith Without Being A Jerk

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 10.

share

Jesus sends out the 72 followers to go and prepare the cities for his entrance, ahead of him. He tells them to go in peace and eat whatever is set before them. I like this kind of evangelism. Jesus isn’t mean about sharing the Kingdom of God, he sends it out with kindness and peace. How do you share your faith in Jesus? Are you a jerk about it? Do you have to convert people to the faith and make it all about “you”, or can you let the Spirit of God do the work? Listen with us at Crossroads as we practice sharing faith as a spiritual discipline.

Following Jesus; Learning To Pray

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to pray like Jesus.

praying

We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.
