Samson was perhaps the strongest man who ever lived.  The story of Samson's life begins with an amazing announcement of his birth by The Angel of the Lord.  He was a Nazirite set apart for God's service to begin to deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines.  Samson's incredible exploits include tearing a lion apart with his bare hands, killing a thousand men with the jawbone of a donkey, and tearing ropes like little strings.  Yet, his amazing strength was overshadowed by his moral weakness.  Samson's lack of self control and lack of faithfulness to God's ways resulted in his downfall.  His lack of commitment to honor and obey God manifested itself in anger, lust, and relationships with Philistine women -- particularly with the deceitful Delilah.  However, after years of bondage, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Samson once again and gave him incredible strength to perform one last super human feat at the end of his life.  In one spectacular moment of strength, Samson brings down the massive Philistine temple, killing more enemies at his death than during his life!  Samson served as a judge over Israel for twenty years.  The story of Samson is an amazing true-life story that teaches us many relevant truths for our lives today!
