Samson // Can you imagine sitting down with Samson and hearing all of his stories! What do you think he would say was his greatest story that we could learn from?

Judges 14:6
“Then the Spirit of the Lord rushed upon him, and although he had nothing in his hand, he tore the lion in pieces as one tears a young goat.”
Genesis 30:1
“Give me children, or I shall die
Galatians 5:22-25
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
Judges 16:21
And the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes and brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze shackles.
Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Lessons from Old Saints

1. Read Ephesians 1:3-6. What does it mean to be chosen by God? What responsibilities does that bring, and what freedoms does that bring?

2. Samson had a purpose that was defined for his life before he was even born, and took a Nazirite vow to set his life apart in the service of God, but yet frequently made decisions that were in conflict with that. This is not an uncommon thing in today’s world either – where we seem to be ok making decisions that conflict with our decision to follow Jesus. Why do we think this is the case? How do we rationalize making these decisions, and why is that a dangerous thing?

3. Brian said that God will never be thwarted in achieving His purpose, and that we get to decide whether or not we will glorify Him through our lives or not. What do you think about this statement? How can we glorify God in our actions and in our relationships? What are some things that you need to start doing differently in order to better glorify God?

4. Repentance is an important part of our relationship with God. What are some things that you have been chasing or allowing in your life because they “seemed right in your eyes” that you need to repent of and move away from? If you’re comfortable, share these things with some or all of your small group and invite them to hold you accountable in this goal.
