I hope everyone will be able to join me this Sunday morning at DCC as we begin the Advent season and continue our study in the Book of Judges.
As we have seen, the life of Samson clearly demonstrates the sinfulness of people and their great need for salvation. It is God’s desire that his people be holy and separate in response to his grace; but Samson, like Israel and far to often like us, is governed by what is right in his own eyes.
This is a mind-set that is deeply evil in God’s sight - but before we get too carried away condemning the Israelites we need to ask ourselves — how prevalent is this sin in our day?
How many Christians hold to positions that defy the scriptures simply because they are “right in their own eyes”?
More on this and on the amazing grace of God who saves and empowers his servants in spite of this truth.
