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?

Who Is In Control? | Ambassadors

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

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on God being in control of our lives.

ambassadorsWe often encounter people who want control over us, or want to manipulate us. Even Jesus experienced the Apostle Peter, who tried to stop Jesus’ mission of going to Jerusalem to die for the sins of the world. Did Peter really try to derail God’s plan? No. He just didn’t want Jesus to be killed. Peter, however, didn’t know the bigger plan of God for the world. We can act like this sometimes. We can get in the way of another person, or other people can get in the way of God’s mission in our lives. How do we learn to articulate our calling from God and live into the purposes of God, while letting God have control? Join us to find out.

God’s Peace in Your Life | Mindset

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to have peace from God.

sunyu-394123-unsplashPaul, the Apostle, teaches people they can have peace with God. When we are anxious, we are to give our anxiety to God through prayer petitions and offerings to God. We can learn to no longer be anxious about anything, but in everything, in every way, give your thoughts to God and He will guard your hearts and minds in God’s understanding of Peace. Wouldn’t it be nice to stop worrying about things we can’t control anyways? Wouldn’t it be something to be able to not fret over money, or time, or upcoming events? There is a way to learn the Peace of God for every situation.

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.

May God Give You Peace

Crossroads Church of Greeley, Colorado

http://www.crossroadsgreeley.com

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the end of the priestly blessing.

priestblessinNumbers 6:22-27 speaks of the blessing that God’s priests would say over the people every day. The blessing was given to Moses, from God, for the people to receive and walk in God’s favor. Do you have God’s favor in your life? Do you know the peace of God, not as the world gives, but as only Jesus can give peace? God is gracious and forgiving, kind and compassionate, willing to keep his face toward us, even when we sin. God is the kind of God who gives a blessing before we even deserve it. You can receive the blessing of God on your life today.

A Different Calling in this World

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on 1 Peter 2.

dead.faith

God has called you; chosen you; picked you out of a line up, to be different in this dark world. You have the gifts and qualities necessary to meet the needs for someone near you. Open your eyes, and open your hands to serve those around you with the love of Jesus. You don’t have to have all the right words, just serve with an open heart. God will provide a place to serve, when you follow your callings. If God nudges you in life, say yes to his leading. You don’t have to worry about being embarrassed or confused, or afraid, with God in the lead, He will provide the care you need to serve his people. What are you afraid of? Step out in faith.
