Blog: Realms of Kingdom Authority

During the sermon, “I Like The Way You Work It,” we had a panel of businessmen answer some practical questions. One of the participants, Gregg Motley, shared about the Realms of Kingdom Authority and it piqued many people’s interest.  We asked Greg to expound and this post is just that. You can listen to the sermon & panel here or on our app.

The word kingdom denotes a realm or territory where a king rules, which is why Jesus used the word to describe His activity, and that of the Holy Spirit on earth. Wherever Jesus reigns, His Kingdom is present, and that begins with our hearts yielded to Him.


To bring order to His Kingdom and move His Creation toward the New Jerusalem, Jesus delegated his authority to four realms, working through us as co-laborers:

Church – Ephesians 3: 10

Family – Ephesians 6: 1-3

Government – Romans 13: 1

Workplace – Colossians 3: 22


According to scripture, the Spirit works through these human institutions to bring us wisdom (church), wellbeing (family), order (government) and prosperity (workplace).  If we do not consider our responsibility to what the Spirit is doing in these realms, we open ourselves up to the natural consequences of this earth and the evil spiritual forces at work in it.  We leave ourselves vulnerable on a day to day basis and miss out on His blessings.
The typical American does not identify with the words “king” or “kingdom”.  Our country was established by rebellion and rejection of a monarchy and independence is an important social construct to us.  Naturally, we do not easily subject ourselves to authority.  That is why it is particularly important that we pay attention to what the scripture has to say on the subject.
Does Jesus always delegate His authority to the holiest and just men and women on earth?  Overwhelmingly, the answer appears to be “No”!  Incompetence and bad character appear to be more common among those in authority in Kingdom realms.  Why does Jesus want His people subjected to these poor leaders?  So that we can bring His truth to men and women in all places, all positions and all walks of life.  It is not about our comfort, rather it is about advancing His Kingdom.

When is it Biblically permissible to throw off unjust authority?  Clearly, when that authority requires one to violate their conscience.  In Acts 5: 27-28, the Jewish council (governing authority of the church) required the Apostles to quit speaking in the Name of Jesus.  The Apostle Peter’s response: “We must obey God rather than men.” 

In Judges 6, God calls Gideon to throw off all four realms of authority by tearing down an altar to Baal in his hometown and sacrificing his father’s bull on a new altar built for the Lord.  It is my belief that our Founding Fathers heard the voice of the Lord to throw off the yoke that was the English monarchy in response to their immoral behavior, but the Confederacy did not hear His voice when they incited the “War of the Rebellion”, as the Civil War was known at the time.  Their complaints were primarily economic, not moral.

So how does a Biblical believer relate to those is realms of Kingdom authority when it is not the best, but does not have Biblical grounds to rebel?

Some thoughts:

  • Take your complaint to the Throne, not the phone.  It is okay to have those with whom you are in accountability to talk through your struggles, but don’t automatically chime in with others who are discontent.
  • Ask the Spirit what He is doing in the situation and cooperate with Him.  He may be setting you up to be redemptive and healing.
  • Show those in authority that you are clearly on their side.  Tacit (or active) opposition only makes the leader insecure and more apt to misbehave.
  • Don’t jump from church to church, marriage to marriage or job to job.  You will not find peace by merely changing your scenery.  Dig in and be a part of the solution.
  • Don’t burn bridges.  Sometimes the Spirit requires us to make a change, but leave the door open to your past relationships so that the Lord can use you in the future.
  • Focus on the relationships.  Money and power have few roles in the Kingdom, but relationships are everything.  As far as it depends on you, invest in relationships as if they are eternal.
  • Maintain your level of respect for those in authority over you.  Sometimes, this is easier said than done, but it remains a choice.  Ask God to empower you to obey.
Love your Church, bless her with your words and give to her.  Honor your family members and stay connected and supportive in this unique role.  Get involved in your government and help make it better.  Do your work with excellence without complaining.  Cooperating with Jesus’ plan to bring His Kingdom through earthly authority will put you in a place to receive Kingdom blessing and all He has for you.  It will put you in a place to be a co-laborer with Him to usher in the New Jerusalem, for which we all long.

Blog: Your spouse is your two, not your kids.

Last night, we hosted the first of a four-week marriage event. We used a video teaching from Pastor Craig Groeschel at Life.Church and took a look at “The Vow of Priority,” realizing that God is our ONE, and our spouse is our TWO.

During our discussion time about priorities, the subject about kids and how easy it is to value your kids over your spouse. We often seem to celebrate our kids while merely tolerating our spouses. We pour so much energy into our kids, we often have nothing left for our spouses when the day ends.
Children indeed are a gift from God, but they are a temporary assignment. The first gift God gave us was our spouse.

I believe our marriages are blessed because of the covenant we made with our spouse. Your kids are the fruit of that blessing, not the cause of the blessings. It’s vital that we realize that proper priorities in our marriages help us be God-honoring with our lives.

God’s design for the family is that we would love our spouse and train our kids. Too often we flip that around – we train our spouse and love our kids.
When we have our priorities in life wrong, good things begin to create unnecessary tension and things start to go wrong.

So the question is, “How can we reprioritize our marriage to take priority over our kids?”

Here are some thoughts on how to bring it back into the proper priority that honors God.

(1) Start with the heart.

Begin by asking God’s forgiveness and then repenting to your spouse. We cannot skip this step, because if our hearts are not in the right place, we will eventually revert back to old patterns.

(2) Pray.

The Bible says, we don’t have, because we don’t ask. Ask God to help your love and pursuits come into alignment with your priority. Make a daily confession that, “God is my one, my spouse is my two, not my kids. I love my spouse and lay down my life for them.”

(3) Dream and define it.

Take a walk with your spouse and ask them to describe, in their view, what the marriage looks like with proper priorities. As they talk, don’t criticise or belittle their ideas.
Ask questions like: Who get’s the first kiss when you arrive home? How often will you have a date night? What kind of tone do you use when speaking with each other? What will be your response when kids come to interrupt your conversation together? What needs to change? How can you communicate this value to your kids? These are just a few questions to help you begin to articulate what you envision it looking like. Find a way to meditate often and think about this picture of your reprioritized marriage.

(4) Calendar it.

Date nights, overnight trips without the kids, nightly couch time (the time when you take 10 minutes to catch up on your day, without interruptions from kids), devotions together, even the nights for sex during the week (yes, I said the week, not month). Put it on your calendar – all of it. Placing it on the schedule helps you to protect that time, plan for the time, and build anticipation toward that time.

(5) Evaluate it.

Once a month, ask your spouse for feedback. “How do you feel we are doing with our priorities – God, Marriage, then kids?” Listen to their response, without being defensive, and come up with creative ways to move forward toward your goal.


Pastor Craig says it like this, “Laziness makes an excuse, but love makes a way.” I believe that with some prayer and when we truly begin to put God in His proper priority spot in our lives, everything else gets a little easier to prioritize.

At the end of they, anything we have not first submitted or surrendered to God can become an idol. Whatever we idolize will interfere with our intimacy with God. Until we allow God to be our first priority, we will be unsatisfied in our lives.


What else would you add to this list?



Sunday, July 29

We are taking our weekly church service poolside!

We figure Summertime is the perfect time to celebrate as a church family and strengthen friendships. So, we’ve planned an abbreviate worship service for Sunday, July 29 at the Fort Scott City Pool. We will worship as a family, read some scripture, and celebrate with those taking their next step in water baptism.
Come ready to swim and enjoy the morning with our Faith Church community. We’ve rented the city pool from 10 am until 11:45 am and will have free corn dogs and popsicles available at the end.

Interested in water baptism?

We live in a time of history where most people are keenly aware of their shortcoming. And if they start to forget it, there are often a line of people willing to fill-in and remind them. People live with shame and regret and are tired of trying to cover it up. I believe many are looking for a place they can belong while they figure out what hope in their life looks like.

It’s true, there is plenty of narcissism to go around, and many people live with an inflated sense of self-worth. I tend to think it’s a compensation for insecurities they don’t want to be seen. It’s merely pride, drenched in shame.

God invites us to bring faith into our lives. When we do, faith comes to life for others. As a church community, we want to be a life-giving source to everyone. There are many who grew up in church but swear they’ll never go back. Many more who never have thought about coming to church because they’re sure they’d be rejected if they ever did attend. So many people we live and work around who have yet to hear that God loves them.

That is why we started a #ForYou campaign. We want to live our lives in a way that tells people around us, “God is #ForYou, and so are we.”

Today, I want to share some practical ways you can bring faith to life, and help remind people that God is for them.

1. Be an Encourager.

I have never heard anyone say, “Please stop encouraging me, I am overflowing with encouragement.” If you look hard enough, you can always find something kind to say that is uplifting. Make it a habit of inserting a compliment in each conversation you have.
If you can’t find a compliment, at the end of the conversation add “By the way, God is #ForYou.”

2. Buy and wear (often) a #ForYou shirt

The t-shirts are not only fashionable and comfortable, it’s a great conversation starter. Whether people are curious to know what a hashtag (#) is or they’re trying to figure out what “FOR YOU” really means, it can create a friendly conversation where you can tell your story or invite them to church.

You also could do something kind for someone. Bring your neighbor some cookies or assist with their yard work. Buy the person’s food in line behind you. Even if you wear it around town with a genuine smile on your face, you can brighten someone’s day and it’s a good representation of Faith Church.

3. Social Media Posts

Anytime you post a scripture, say something positive, share your story or a lesson you’ve learned from reading the Bible, say something about our church, or even check-in on Facebook on Sunday – add the phrase “God is #ForYou and so are we!” to the end of the post.

Along those same lines, a great way to be a positive influence online is to post your sermon notes, scriptures, or your experience from a Sunday gathering. Maybe it’s a line to a song, a picture you took during the service, the podcast or a statement within the message, you can share that on social media and include the #ForYou hashtag. When you post about the life-giving things you are experiencing, you give people a sneak-peak into Faith. Sometimes that is all someone needs to feel comfortable enough to “come and see.”

4. Give a coffee mug or t-shirt as a gift

Do you have a person or two you’ve been praying would come to church or would receive salvation? This is a great way to invite someone to church. It also can become a visual reminder to them that you care about them, are praying for them, and they belong!
I’m reminded of the Apostle Paul’s words to the church in Thessalonica –
“The word has gotten around. Your lives are echoing the Master’s Word, not only in the provinces but all over the place. The news of your faith in God is out. We don’t even have to say anything anymore—you’re the message!” (1 Thessalonians 1:8 MSG)


This is more than a social media slogan. This is a message we want our community to hear from our lives – “God is #ForYou, and so are we!”


Blog: Double or Nothing – A Sermon Remix

“Double or Nothing.”  That was a statement often uttered following a failed trick shot on the basketball court when I was a teen. Something within us was confident (some might say, too confident) the outcome would change with another attempt.

We often live like this. Entirely convinced our next effort will be the winning one. However, most of the time we don’t adjust our approach, we just blindly choose to add more grit and energy, convinced that will suffice.

The Bible has a lot to say about living this way.
Proverbs 29:23 (MSG)
Pride lands you flat on your face; humility prepares you for honors.
Proverbs 26:12 (NIV)
Do you see a person wise in their own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for them.

Proverbs 16:18 (NIV) Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Why are “pride and a “haughty spirit” so detrimental to us? Allow me to share a few thoughts.

1. Pride Blinds Us.

We can’t walk through life while blinded by pride. We will trip all along the way.

Pride lies to you about you, leaving you blind to the truth. We resist change and assume we are all set. When we don’t allow honest feedback into our lives, we find ourselves living by grit rather than grace. Pride has a way of burning up the grace we need to live life well.

Grace is like oil for a car engine. It reduces friction as life “heats up” around us. We need God’s grace to keep the friction low, so we don’t ruin relationships and opportunities.

There have been seasons in my life where I noticed certain relationships or responsibilities started to create more friction than usual. A few times it was God beginning to remove a grace in my life for a particular duty, and a transition was coming. However, most often my pride was the reason for the friction. Pride punctures us, causing the oil of God’s grace to leak out. Most of the time, it’s such a slow leak that we don’t see it until pride has caused some damage.

Pride will also blind you from seeing what you need to learn. When was the last time you received feedback without getting defensive? It’s not easy to receive instruction, but if we can be humble and teachable, God can take us to our destiny. In short, we need to pursue honesty in our life. Honesty points us toward humility.

2. A Haughty Spirit blurs your vision.

Where pride was all about a blinded perspective of ourselves, a haughty spirit is about how we look at others. A haughty spirit blurs our opinion of others. It’s what motivates us to push people aside for our own agenda. We elevate ourselves by belittling them. You can tell if someone is haughty by the fact they cannot celebrate with others when they succeed, and they often criticize others.

A haughty spirit is more than just thinking you are better than everyone. It believes you deserve to be treated better. Not better than someone else; simply better. Before you start dismissing this idea of a haughty spirit as being limited to the wealthy or high-society folks, you need to ask yourself a question – “How did I act the last time I got poor service at a restaurant?”

You see, I think that a haughty spirit is at the core of a consumeristic mindset. It leads us to believe, somehow, we are the central figure of our life. We develop a mindset slanted toward selfishness and self-centeredness.

God tells us to be good stewards not to be consumers. God wants to fill us with His grace so we can live as servants of His Kingdom.

The bottom line is this, we either humble ourselves, or we will be humbled. Honesty and stewardship link us to humility. Proverbs 16:5 says, “The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.”

It’s time to stop gambling with our purpose. I say we go double or nothing on humility! We either double-down on humility, or we will end up with nothing – nothing but heartache, bitterness, betrayal, enemies, loneliness, and an empty life.

Here what I’d ask you to do: take two minutes and examine your heart, asking God to reveal where you’ve been blinded by pride and have blurred priorities because of a haughty spirit.
I pray we exchange pride and a haughty spirit for a humble heart, which God loves!
I truly hope our #SummerOfWisdom series is impacting your life! I pray it draws you closer to God this Summer and enriches your faith as we read through the book of Proverbs together.

Dishes on a Shelf

When Amber and I married, we did what most all couples do – created a gift registry. One of the things we (and by “we,” I mean “she”) wanted to register for was a beautiful set of dinnerware. Nothing exquisite, but some higher-end plates, cups, bowls, etc.

Well, the day came to open our wedding gifts, and someone graciously had purchased us two of each dinnerware item we wanted.


We intended to save them for special occasions when it was just the two of us. The romantic candlelight type events. Surprisingly, in the past fourteen years of marriage, we used those dishes on two occasions.


I think.


To be honest, it happened so infrequently; I don’t recall the details. What I am sure of, is that those dishes were kept out of reach and went unused, day after day, year after year. It’s not that we didn’t like them, oh on the contrary. We loved them. We cherished them. They had great value to us. We just never used them.


We were waiting for the perfect occasion to dust them off. You know the kind of time I’m referring. The time you send the kids to bed early, light some candles and enjoy the night becoming intoxicated with the gaze in each other’s eyes.


What perfect bliss!


We waited.


And waited. Until one day recently, we looked up and realized we needed more plates for dinner. We reached up and decided to use them, finally.


Not for a special occasion, but just because there was a need. And we haven’t stopped using those plates.


I think we have gifts and abilities that God has given to us that we treat similarly. We hold off until we feel it’s the perfect scenario to use them.


Sometimes it’s an encouraging word we believe God whispered to us for someone else and we set it aside for a perfect time to share it. Or we wait until the kids are less hectic to get ready in the morning and for our spouse to be inspired before we commit to serve, putting our gifts to use.


Here’s the deal, when we don’t use what we have, we don’t make room for more.


God is always looking for available spaces, hearts, and lives to fill fresh. He longs to partner with us to meet needs. We often cry out for God to do something new in us, yet we never make space for more because we have not used what we already have. God will not add to or grow what we never put to use.


It’s easy to allow fear to keep us from releasing what’s in our hands. Just ask Moses, Gideon, the widow in need of food, or even the disciples who stole a lunch from a young boy. Fear had to be faced before they stepped out in faith. God cannot multiply what we remain trying to control.


We are far from perfect, and the timing will likely never seem perfect. But perfect isn’t a prerequisite for participating. God uses jars of clay with imperfections all over it (see 2 Corinthians 4:7). Those are His favorite delivery system for His presence and power.
We don’t need to sit back, be reserved, and wait for the perfect moment. Today is the day to begin using and sharing what God has placed in you. Use what is in your hand, today. Don’t wait for the perfect occasion. The time is now. Use what you have and watch God start to pour out more.


I’ve decided it’s better to use that dinnerware, instead of allowing it to sit on the shelf, unused. Plates were made to bring food to people.


You and I were created to bring Faith to people.


It’s time to get off the shelf.
– Pastor Matthew –


Blog: Reviews and Referrals

How often have you bought something solely on the recommendation of another person? A friend recommends a coffee machine or Insta-Pot, and your curiosity has peaked. Someone tells you how friendly and trustworthy a repair man was to them and you log their phone number away for when you need it.
And with social media, you are just one post away from requesting all your follower’s reviews and referrals on any number of things.

For many businesses, a personal and positive referral is the highest compliment a customer can give to a business. I have heard of one company that during their initial launch, would send you their product for free because they were confident you would love it so much that you’d tell your friends to buy one.

I almost never buy anything that I haven’t read reviews on or talked to a friend about. I like to be informed about a product I’m about the invest in, but I don’t want to make a decision based solely on the manufacturer’s description. I want to know from others what their experience was, the pros and cons, the truth behind the product. I want to read other people’s reviews and ratings of a product.

Here is the bottom line: Your enthusiasm leads to others’ engagement.
When it comes to your faith in Jesus, people are interested in your review and referrals — your experience. When you share your experience at church or story of all that God is doing in you personally, people take notice.

I’ve seen this through my kids. Two of the three are school age. At different times, their personal enthusiasm about church and God came out of them at school. As a result, both have seen their teachers and others come to church and have a life-giving experience.

Their mom and I didn’t coax them or tell them, it was just an authentic expression of their experience. They just loved their church and their God and wanted to share their enthusiasm.

I’ve seen this principle play out in worship times. The worship team shows no excitement about the songs their singing, and it looks passionate-less, no one really engages. Why? Because our their level of enthusiasm (or lack there-of) closes the lid on other’s engagement.

Real enthusiasm is not emotionalism, it comes from a place of deep conviction. A conviction that what you have is worth the effort to keep it around. While there may be emoting taking place, it’s not superficial, manufactured, nor self-indulgent. True enthusiasm comes from a life-giving source of joy. When you’ve experienced something so good, so transformative, so life-giving, you cannot fake that enthusiasm.

All it takes is one person to become enthused, and others will start to engage. I’ve seen it outside of the church, like at sporting events. One fan finally decides to step out of the silence and start cheering their team on, and others begin to engage too. Why? Enthusiasm is contagious, and it leads to other’s engagement.

On the flip side, no one wants to engage in something that is surrounded by dread and duty. If your personal approach to church and faith is more duty than delight, you’re not experiencing the life-giving faith God intended. I’m not saying it’s all sunshine and rainbows. I am saying that faith can be life-giving even amidst the down times. What I am saying is that if you have no enthusiasm about your relationship with God, those around you won’t either.

What has God done in your life? What does your church community mean to you? Decide to share that enthusiasm with those around you, and watch them begin to engage in it too. All because you chose to invite them into your experience.

“The word has gotten around. Your lives are echoing the Master’s Word, not only in the provinces but all over the place. The news of your faith in God is out. We don’t even have to say anything anymore— you’re the message!” 
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:8 ‭MSG


Blog: Frequency

Frequency can be defined as the particular waveband at which a radio station or other system broadcasts or transmits signals. If you want to hear a certain broadcast, you have tune-in to that signal or frequency. With today’s technology, there are a variety of methods used to receive a signal.
Hearing God’s voice is a lot like that. There are many ways we hear God’s whispers. In a recent sermon entitled “Tiaras + Tears,” Pastor Matthew shared several means in which God speaks to us.
Today’s post illustrates some of the ways God whispers to us. It was written by Clayton Whitson, one of our Connect Group Leaders.
Learning to calibrate our receiving antennae to hear God’s voice can certainly be frustrating at times. That statement in itself may be an understatement. Then, if I feel as though I’m hearing God fairly well, some other area of my life goes sideways requiring attention and causing a distraction to my ‘hearing’ process. It seems I’m needed to pay constant attention to my hearing. I certainly haven’t figured it out but I want to share a bit of a story in how God used multiple ‘ways and means’ to speak to my wife and me.
We were considering a major decision in our lives and we had some hesitation about timing and a few other things. However, we felt God prompting us because at the same time, we both (separately), felt an urgency to pay attention to this matter. Immediately (like the next day), we received a text pointing to this exact thing we were giving our attention to, so we got the clue.
In our preparations which took some effort, my wife had another thought to consider another option. As it turns out, the second option was even better but had we not started the preparation to head in this direction, we would have never even known about the second, better option.
Often it seems when there is a long process of decision making and preparation, God will continue to encourage and send confirmations along the way. This may not be necessary for everyone, but sometimes if I meet the littlest of resistance, I’m out. Especially if there are areas of uncertainty and risk is involved.
This was one of those decisions. The next Sunday, we were getting ready for worship to begin and someone came up and said, “I think the Lord may want to speak an encouragement to you. Would that be okay?” Anytime someone starts off with this statement, I am very receptive, even if the encouragement is only partially true, it’s about learning to speak and receive from the Lord and I LOVE that others are stepping out in faith. Not only is the “word” encouraging, but the fact that others are trying to hear provokes me to step out and encourage others as well.
He started off by saying, “I’m not exactly sure what the Lord wants to say, can we pray?” We started to pray and just postured ourselves to be receptive to ‘hearing’ what God had for us. As we were praying, he had an image of a lily pad and a frog come to mind. He shared that with me and didn’t offer further explanation and left. After a bit more worship, he came back and said, “I think you are supposed to leap.”
He had absolutely no idea what we had been considering for the past two weeks. I knew this had to do with the decision that was in front of us. I’m am always blown away by how God speaks, but it requires faith, both to speak and to hear. Had we not taken steps two weeks ago and listened to the small ‘inner witness’ to begin taking steps, I may not have had the context to ‘hear’ what God was saying through the leaping frog.
I think for major decisions, God will use multiple forms of communication to keep us focused. Our progressions on this decision was: agreement between my wife and I on an inner-witness (urgency); confirmed with a text message the next day; followed by a thought to my wife to “look around,” confirmed by a second, better option, followed by someone coming and sharing an “encouragement from the Lord” and … we are awaiting the final confirmation.
Of course, I think God is always speaking to us on a much small scale as well, even daily. He wants to encourage us, but until we recognize His voice, we often assume those nudgings are our own thoughts.

I think of Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” I think this is a big part of ‘hearing.’ If we are delighting ourselves in the Lord, we position our hearts to receive from Him. Most of the time, it only takes my spending a brief time analyzing my thoughts and it often becomes clear from where they thought originated. In my experience, it’s not completely that my hearing needs adjusting, but rather correctly identifying which thoughts are from my Father and which are not.

Keep going, don’t stop learning.

While our series is over, there is more you can study and more information that can strengthen your faith.

We all have deep questions within us. Questions, when posed with humility, can lead us on a journey to learn instead start arguments.

One of my favorite communicators is Ravi Zacharias, who regularly speaks to the penetrating uncertainties we have about life and faith. I recently came across him speaking at a church in Atlanta, where he answers many questions. I believe you will find it helpful and thought-provoke. Take a look at it:
