But God

Re:Verse passage – Judges 16:15-21 (day six)  

Samson represents two simultaneous truths, the total moral collapse of the tribes of Israel and the total committedness of God to his people. God chose the twelve tribes, yet they had grown comfortable with Philistine idolatry and sexual immorality; they had forgotten God. God also chose Samson, but even under a Nazarite vow, he lived as if God didn’t exist.

YET, despite how far they had fallen, God used Samson to preserve his people once again. Samson’s story (in fact, the entire book of Judges) foretells a desperate need for a righteous king to rule God’s people and God’s committedness to make it a reality.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8
