Blog Post Servants of the Kingdom

The Mission: to make disciples for the glory of God and the joy of his people. We at the Crossing desire for all of our Covenant Partners to see themselves as missionaries. Specifically that Jesus has sent us into the world and wants to use us in the lives of those around us everyday. This can be with family, friends, co-workers and anyone Jesus opens a door for a relationship. With that, there are a few folks in our body that have been called by God to serve in various capacities both locally and abroad. We've recently highlighted some of the folks during some of our Sunday Gatherings. Here's a recap, contact info and ways your can specifically pray for these missionaries.

Blog Post Sermon Recap, Acts 18:18-28

The Ripples of Discipleship: Acts 18:18-28 "Ordinary People living ordinary lives with gospel intentionality who are empowered by the Holy Spirit." This is one of our motto's here at the Crossing and in Acts 18 we see this motto lived out in Aquila and Priscilla. Aquila and Priscilla were a ordinary couple who had a tremendous impact on the early Church, in particular the Churches in Corinth, Ephesus and possibly Rome. They modeled for us 3 characteristics of a Disciple Maker and how everyday people are used by God to build His Kingdom: --Available --Hospitable --Engaging Here are some questions from the sermon: What was the main point of the sermon? What was your favorite part of Acts 18:18-28? Out of the 3 characteristics (being available, hospitable, engaging) where do you excel and where do you need prayer and growth? What does the phrase, "Discipleship is not what you do but it's who you are" mean? How does understanding this phrase change you... Continue reading

Blog Post Sermon Recap, Acts 18:1-17

Acts 18:1-17, "The First Disciple's in Corinth" What causes fear in your heart? That was the question we opened up with in Acts 18:1-17. In this portion of scripture we see the Apostle Paul (the William Wallace of the Faith) struggle and overcome the fears and the high's and low's of making Disciples in Corinth. Here are a several questions to ask and meditate on in Acts 18:1-17 1. What was the Corinthian Culture like that Paul was engaging? What are the contemporary issues that we share with the Corinthian Culture here in Fort Collins/USA? 2. What were the high's and low's of Paul's ministry to the Corinthians in Verses 1-17? What are the high's and low's you encounter in your ministry? 3. Why did Paul in verse 6, "dust of his garments?" Why did he also say in verse 6, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent?" How can we apply this OT example to our lives today? 4. Why was Paul afraid in verse 9? How did the Lord meet Paul in his... Continue reading
