The Liability of Labels

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Liability of Labels.

labels-wordleLabels in our lives, have a way of keeping us down, or projecting us forward. We can either believe the bad labels and live down to them, or live up to new good labels. How is it working out in your life? Do the labels of your past haunt you and keep you stuck, or can you believe the good labels you’ve been given in Christ and move forward? God used a woman in the Bible named Rahab, to show us that your life can change.

Share Your Story | Ambassadors

Pastor Reid teaches on How to Share Your Story of faith with others. It’s not that complicated at all.Screen Shot 2019-02-26 at 4.40.55 PM

Following the pattern of John 1:34-46, we see that Andrew found his brother Simon (Peter), and told him what he knew of Jesus, and brought him to Jesus. We are adapting a biblical principle of FIND, TELL, BRING to share our faith with others. You will learn to help people find and follow Jesus when you find someone you love, tell them what you know of God, and bring them along in their faith. We want your experience of sharing God with others to be a simple and friendly as that.

Re-framing Your Thinking | Mindset

Crossroads Church of Greeley, CO http://www.crossroadsgreeley.com

battle of the mindPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on reframing your mindset to think the things of God, rather than be trapped by our own wrong habitual way of thinking. The Apostle Paul tells us to reshape our thinking, so we think the thoughts of God. We often get trapped in “stinking thinking” and get our minds all wrapped around some false way of self destruction. God wants so much more for us in Jesus. You have the capacity to re-calibrate your own thinking to get out of the ditches, and move into the space of freedom that God desires for you. Won’t you choose to elevate your thinking.

Basic Training | Mindset

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on basic training for the mind.

brain trainMany people live with a negative mindset, and this stems from negative self talk. When we constantly barrage our mind with negativity, we will be sure to live it out in our behavior. But there’s a good solution. You can rewire the neural pathways in your mind from negative to positive thoughts. We learn to replace the constantly critical statements in our mind, with biblical truth from God’s Word, write it down, think it, say it aloud, then we’ll begin to believe it.

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.

coffee spill

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.

You’re The One With “Control Issues”

Crossroads Church of Greeley, Colorado http://www.crossroadsgreeley.com

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on “Being Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired”.

Control

We look at the issues of control in the life of the one who follows God. If you have a faith in Jesus, you might know that God calls us to lay down our lives before Him and give up our issues of control & fear. The issues of control come from insecurities and fears. When you let fears rule your life, you don’t give up control to God to work things out. When you trust God with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-8), then you begin to let go of your need for controlling others. Your life actually becomes more filled with peace and joy. What are the things hanging you up as you try to control others around you? How can you learn to give up control, so God can work through you to bless the world a little bit more?
