Good Morning Church Members & Guests
Today’s message is the last of our four-part series on the life of Samson.
We will see Samson, a man with such God-given potential, after 20 years of faithfulness, make some terrible decisions.
You will see that most people make a series of mistakes that, over time, will lead to heartache and misery. We will see that Satan is in the business of destroying our testimony. He goes around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
When we think we can handle life’s temptations on our own, that is when Satan jumps in and causes us to fall. You see, in God’s eyes, just because you're down, you are not out. Now, Samson’s life is a tragedy and it’s an example for us of what not to do, but it’s also a powerful illustration that, even in our failures, God can still use us. Even when you've messed up, it's not over.
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, World War I ended. The end of the War to End All Wars was commemorated on every following November 11 by the observance of what was once known as Armistice Day.
This observance became a national holiday by an act of Congress. In 1954, U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower changed the name to Veterans Day. In this way, all U.S. veterans are honored on November 11 of each year.
