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.

Comparison Will Kill Ya

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the deathly cancer of comparison.

applesWhen we compare our lives to someone else, or compare our things to other things, or when we compare our skills to other people, we often come out on the short end of the deal, and feel awful. We might also compare to others, and come out ahead, which is pride. So, either way, we lose. God didn’t design comparison. It came from the devil’s mouth. He compared the first humans to God himself. “You can be like him”, he said. How has comparison slithered into your life, and how does it wreak havoc?

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.
