Tribe Weekly Bible Plan (7 day) - Walking with Jesus (self-control)


Greetings Tribes!

This week we continue to learn how our vices effect our life. They cause us to not like ourselves, while our virtues attract others to like us. Vices are self-destructive behaviors, and they disrupt our relationship with God and others. Now we learn about Samsons vices that led him to a double -life because he lacked discernment, which ultimately caused him to lose his dignity - all because he didn't have a contrite heart.


5 So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. 6 Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. 7 You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. 8 But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. 9 Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. 10 Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. (Colossians 3:5-10 NLT)



Being CONTRITE means we are submitted to -

1. God's word within me (Isaiah 66:2)

Don't wait until the outward brokenness causes inward brokenness. We should respond to God's Word emotionally and practically, respecting His Word and applying it to our lives.

2. God's authority above me (Psalms 141:5)

God's authority is meant to be helpful, not a hindrance. God protects our soul; it is wise for us to allow this authority to speak into our life.

3. God's community around me (Proverbs 13:20)

Surrounding ourselves with God's people will help us become aware of behavioral blindsides and if we allow others to help us grow spiritually, we will draw closer to God. In turn, we will also help others to grow spiritually!

When we live with a contrite heart, our vices diminish and our virtues shine through.


We pray that you are staying intentionally, spiritually connected with God and others. We pray that you are able to handle your circumstances in life with a contrite heart and Godly wisdom.
