Series: A Faithful God for a Faithless People
March 22, 2021 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes
Samson's story caps this series of flawed and tragic heroes in Judges. Though the model of a born leader, Samson scorns his calling and seeks nothing more than his own gratification. God remains faithful, despite Samson's failings, as we learn the difference between deliverer we want and the deliverer we need.
Judges isn’t just a tragic depiction of the faithlessness of God’s people. It is at the same time a startling account of the patience and faithfulness of a God who refuses to abandon His people, even when they are at their very worst.
