Blake brought this story to life as he shared some of the crazy highlights of Samson’s life. From killing a lion with his bare hands to tieing hundreds of foxes together and setting a field on fire, to slaying 1,000 men with the jawbone of a donkey, to his weakness with Delilah and his ultimate suicide, Blake showcased how this life with so much potential was sabotaged by a series of poor choices.
Here are a few scriptures & highlights from the message:
- Ephesians 5:8-14 “now you are full of light from the Lord, and your behavior should show it”
- There is a war going on and it’s not in Afghanistan, it’s over your heart.
- It is our job to expose darkness.
- Judges 16:20 “But he did not know that the Lord had left him” – this is one of the saddest verses in scripture
- Hebrews 11:32-27
- In Hebrew, Delilah means night and Samson means sunny
- John 8:12
- Is your life a reflection of the light?
It was a great kick-off to our new series. Next week Justin Davis is up talking about the life of Jonathan.
