If you’re a follower of Christ, then you have within you a potental for supernatural greatness.  God wants to raise up spiritual leaders from people who are in this very room…people He can use to make a tremendous diference in this world. Years ago in England, a man named Henry Varley spoke to a young visitor from Chicago.  Mr. Varley said, “The world has yet to see what God can do through one man whose heart is totally surrendered unto Him.”  The young man he spoke to was named D.L. Moody.  Moody heard those words and let them sink in.  As he thought about them, it was like they started burning inside of him.

A year later, he returned to England and sought out Mr. Varley.  Moody asked him, “Do you remember those words you spoke to me?” Varley couldn’t specifcally remember, so Moody reminded him, “You said the world has yet to see what God can do through one man whose heart is totally surrendered unto Him.”  Then Moody said, “I aim to be that man!

D.L. Moody became one of the greatest evangelists of the last several hundred years.

Today we’re startng a new series studying the life of Samson.  If you want to read ahead, you can fnd the story of Samson in Judges chapters 13 – 16.
