SCRIPTURE & DISCUSSION QUESTION
Watch video for this week
Please have 1 person read each:
Hebrews 12:1 (NLT) - Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (ESV) - Do you not know that in a race all the runners run. So run that you may obtain it (run to win). 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT) - But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control.
Give each person a chance to share for 1 min: Pastor Jerry told us how we can maximize the opportunity to win the race called life by activating self-control with the help from the ultimate coach, the Holy Spirit. In the areas he mentioned (Money, Health, Social Media, Sex, Anger, Negative Speaking) where do you see the need to develop self control this week? Share with your group some practical incremental steps you can take towards “winning” this week.
Take time praying for one another. Ask the Holy Spirit to help each person live life with self control this week.
