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.

Battling the Mind

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Battling the Mind for a new Mindset.

brainwiringa

You have more power to change your thinking, than you might realize. The Bible tells us that we are renew our mind daily, on God’s Word for us. Many of us get defeated by our own wayward way of thinking. Many people don’t live a victorious life in God. People tend to believe the lies of satan and don’t end up believing in themselves at all. How do we overcome a negative mindset? One of the tactics of overcoming negative thinking is to identify strongholds in your life, and then replace the strongholds with biblical promises of God. It can be so defeating to live with lies from the enemy, but so freeing to live into the truth of God through the Bible. We need to create a new way of thinking.

Your “ONE WORD” for 2019

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Greeley teaches on your “ONE WORD” for 2019.

one.word.for.year

Have you ever concentrated on one word for the day, or for a week, or month, or even a year? We are practicing our one word for a year as a church together. God may be speaking one thing to you for the year, and He might be wanting you to focus on a single attribute of His, or a single thought for the year. We take a look at Philippians 3 and see that Apostle Paul wants us to forget what is behind (in his case, legalism) and press on to what is ahead (our identity in Jesus Christ), and see that God is calling us to lean forward into faith this coming year. What is your one word for the year?

Christmas Carols | AWAY IN A MANGER

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Christmas Carols for Advent season.

Screen Shot 2018-12-26 at 11.22.02 AM

We often sing songs because they are familiar to us. We sing words and listen to the music, but do we take the time to think about the meaning of the lyrics, or the theology represented? In this series, we break down the lyrics and pay attention to what God is trying to tell us today.

Away in a Manger, a nursery rhyme song from Martin Luther regarding the baby Jesus, is catchy, but it’s only about the baby. What if God were trying to tell you more about Himself than Jesus simply remaining a baby? Listen today with a heart that asks God the question, how better would you like me to follow you?

Oh Come All Ye Faithful

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the Christmas Carol;

Oh-Come-All-Ye-Faithful-1-1

Oh Come All Ye Faithful. Sometimes we don’t feel very faithful, or very joyful or triumphant in our walk with God. There are even more people who don’t even feel like coming to God to approach Him. What do we do to move beyond our feelings about not approaching God? Can there be a better solution than ignoring God’s call? God sent His only Son, Jesus, to be born in Bethlehem, in an animal stable of all things, and God invited the lowly shepherds to the party first. What a better picture of God reaching out to those of us who don’t feel faithful, joyful or triumphant in life. God wants you. God came for you. Won’t you come to Bethlehem to see this one, born king of the angels? God is waiting for you to come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.

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.
