Dave: Judges 13:5 talks about Samson and says, “the boy is to be a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth, and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines.”
Jeff: Samson was a Nazarite. Someone who was separated unto God.
Dave: And Samson’s Purpose: “begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines”
Jeff: Eventually, if you know the story, he gets distracted. When Samson willingly tells Delilah about his hair, he is willingly focusing on something beside God’s purpose for his life.
Dave: We can throw stones, but really, we often we go on with our lives using the gifts God has given us for our own purpose!
Jeff: NO MORE DISTRACTIONS!
Dave: NO MORE USING OUR GIFTS FOR OUR OWN PURPOSE!
Jeff: Hudson Taylor once said, “How few of the Lord’s people have practically recognized the truth that Christ is either Lord of all or he is not Lord at all!”
Dave: LET US SERVE THE LORD OF ALL WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH AND LET US NOT BE DISTRACTED ANYMORE!
Jeff: Read more about Samson in Judges 16.
