Strong in the Lord Season 1, Episode 4 for Tuesday, August 23, 2016
In this episode, we do a character study of the judge Samson. He has a reputation for being strong physically but weak morally. Is what the Bible teaches? Yes, Samson had flaws, but overall God defined his life as faithful (Hebrews 11:32-39).
Like Samson, we all have flaws. Jesus came not to call the righteous, but sinners (Mark 2:17), and we’ve all fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). How do we respond to our flaws? How do we view others who are flawed? Do we look at flaws differently if their physical vs. spiritual? As we examine Samson’s life, let’s also look at these questions to see how we can be Strong in the Lord in spite of our flaws. (Spoiler Alert: We can!)
