A Knock-Out Rose -- VIGNETTE

A friend gave me a beautiful Knock-Out Rose. I was delayed in planting it. Heavy rains were forecasted and if I had planted it, the rose would have drowned.  I drew an analogy about (1) our children (2) baby Christians (3) Young men in the ministry.  Drowning is an ever present danger.  CLICK HERE TO LISTEN

Pilgrim's Regress - SERIES

Judges 13:1-25
Have you ever wondered how Samson got to be listed in chapter 11 of Hebrews?

Judges 14:1-20
“Sonny Boy” (Samson) had some issues and that is putting it kindly.  Seven times, Scripture records him “going down.”  Anytime we decide to do our own will, and not God’s will, we too will be going down spiritually. 

Judges 15-16
Samson is all about Samson. He toys with people and loves riddles (to tie a knot, so to be intricate).  He will get trapped in his own game soon!

Closing Thoughts
Samson is listed in Heb. 11:32-34. Based on the way he lived his life, how did he demonstrate his faith? We are all ‘Sermons in shoes”.  How might our lives demonstrate our professed faith?
