Samson had many faults yet before he was born he was described as ‘the one who would begin to save Israel’. Even as a sinful man, God used him in the fight against the enemy.
God has provided us with a perfect Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will conquer all his and our enemies. He died on the cross to save his people from sin. He has fully accomplished this great salvation.
The story of Samson serves as an example of the power of our great God, and how he uses the lives of sinners for his own purposes and glory. It serves as a warning to to a generation of young children who are growing up in a culture where temptation is rife and where it is easy to give in and fit in rather than stand in the gap as God’s witness.
