7-9-12 Essential Tribal Bond

Indians are not the only people who belong to a tribe.

Michael Hyatt quotes Seth Godin’s book, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us. “A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea.”

Many groups are by definition part of a tribe. If you are member of a union, a political party, a church, a softball team, you name it, and the marks of the tribe will surface. Each of the above appears to be totally different, but in fact the “tie that binds” is the same.

A while ago I noticed that the church I pastor was not in line with the concept of a church tribe. There were too many folks doing their thing instead of Christs’ thing. A glance at any church would give pause to the idea of all being the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most meet the test of being connected by new birth and to Christ, but that is where the difference ends.

Groups of whatever name will only prosper when a large portion of the group is locked onto all three, with the last, the connection to a common idea being the force that drives and binds together. I am spending a lot more effort on the last. It is necessary. Christian people change churches due to ideas.

Philippians 3:13 in part states “But this one thing I do..”
