Kingdom Folk

19853
We are called to be more than consumers of religion. We are called to be Kingdom Folk.

Kingdom Folk live a life of biblical stewardship, loyalty, faith, commitment and unity to the body of Christ. Kingdom Folk do not place their denomination before the kingdom of God, but seeks the kingdom and God’s righteousness first.

Kingdom Men are:

  • The man our wives dreamed of marrying when they were kids.
  • The dad’s our children deserve.
  • Leaders within their churches.
  • And the beacons of light our communities and places of work need to dispel darkness.

Kingdom Women are:

  • The woman our husbands dreamt of marrying
  • The mom’s our children deserve
  • The backbone our church and family needs
  • And the beacons of light within our community

Kingdom Folk are:

  • Called to freedom, to love one another and walk by the Spirit, bearing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control (Gal 5: 13-23).
  • Keeping watch over themselves and other believers lest we be tempted, while restoring each other from sin and bearing others burdens (Gal 6: 1-6).
  • Living examples of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, and forgiveness (Col 3: 12-14).
  • Are being sanctified in Jesus, while abstaining from sexual immorality by controlling our bodies in holiness and honor. We live quiet honorable lives, minding our own business and working within the community, dependent upon no one but Jesus (1 Thess 3: 3-7).
  • Flee sexual immorality while impurity or covetousness must not be part of our make up. We must speak with thanksgiving and try in all things to please the Lord, while exposing unfruitful works of darkness. We make best use of our time, giving thanks to Jesus through our Spirit infused lives (Eph 5: 3-5).
  • People of prayer who do not lift their hands in anger or quarreling (1 Tim 2:8).
  • People who have put away malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander (1 Pet 2: 1-3).

So how do we get there? How do we go from unrepentant degenerate people of sin to the holy lifestyle demanded and expected of Kingdom Folk? How do we become more than consumers of church, to being the Church?

  1. We rely on Jesus and the work of the Spirit.
  2. We conform our lives to Scripture and spend time learning and studying the Bible.
  3. We join other men in this fight to be more Christ-like, we do not attempt this fight alone.
  4. We assess and reassess all areas of our life with Scripture and allow God to whittle away the junk.
  5. We become the leaders in our home, church, work, and community God can use to bring lasting change. We pursue the kingdom and His righteousness.
  6. We understand God uses three primary methods to bring about change within us so we seek all three actively. We join other Kingdom Folk regularly for worship and prayer, while handling adversity in a biblical manner with God’s plan in mind, and focus on our spiritual practices within our church, home, and community.

Kingdom Folk is a small guerrilla group of people who want to study the Word deeper and have it impact their lives.

Kingdom Folk is about advancing the Kingdom of God in this community.

Jesus did not die so we can consume a little bit of church 1-2 times per week. Jesus died so we might live and live more abundantly. Why do we settle for crumbs when so much more is available.
