Listen with Care | Ambassadors

Did you know that the way you listen to other people, is a form of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with them?

Honey Sometimes we just walk all over someone’s conversation, waiting to get a word in edgewise when they take a breath, but by listening with care, we have the ability to share the love of God with others. Pastor Reid Olson shares with us some listening techniques taken from the account where Jesus walks with his disciples following the resurrection. You can learn how to listen better to others, so that the love of God is conveyed through your actions.

How To Bless, as Ambassadors

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

Screen Shot 2019-02-12 at 4.34.16 PMPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley. At Crossroads Church we are learning what it means to be ambassadors for Christ. Jesus articulated the values he expected every one of his followers to possess. He made it clear that God’s Kingdom values are radically different from the values of the world. God wants His ambassadors to demonstrate humility, sorrow over sin, gentleness, a hunger for purity, a desire to relieve suffering, a devotion to peace, and a willingness to endure persecution for doing what is right. A leader who wants to follow Jesus and represent God’s attributes in the world will seek His values. Do you have these qualities? Will you be an ambassador for God in the world?

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?

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.

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.

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.
