Judges 13

SAMSON AND ME

 

We can relate to many of the Bible Characters. We have all been impetuous like Peter and disturbed like Martha.  We've all fallen into sin like David and seen the Lord deliver us from trouble like Daniel.

Other Bible characters are not as easy for us to relate to.  One such character is Samson. We may not think that we have much in common with him, but we do.

 

SAMSON WAS SPECIAL - I AM SPECIAL Vss. 1-5

 

Samson had a special birth. - Vss. 1-3 As a Christian, so did I. - John 3:1-16

Samson was a special person - Vs. 5 - As a Christian, so am I. - Ephesians 1:3-6

Samson lived a special life - Vss. 4-5 - As a Christian, so should I - Titus 2:11-13

 

SAMSON WAS SELECTED TO SERVE GOD - I HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO SERVE GOD Vs. 5

He was selected to deliver Israel.

I am selected to be a faithful servant to my Lord Jesus Christ and to be his ambassador. John 15:16, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

 

SAMSON WAS SEPARATED - I AM SEPARATED Vss. 4-5, 13-14

Please note that there are two types of separation. The first kind is positional. That comes with birth. The other kind is practical. That is lived out on a daily basis. Samson was born separated, and did practice some forms of separation (long hair of a Nazarite).  However, his biggest problem was a lack of separation from foreign women.

 

As Christians, we have been separated unto God. - 1 Peter 2:9

As Christians, we are to live a separated life. - 1 Peter 1:15-16

 

SAMSON WAS SPIRIT MOVED - I SHOULD BE SPIRIT FILLED - Vss. 24-25

See Acts 1:8, Ephesians 5:18-21, Galatians 5:22-23
