This sermon looks at the life of Samson, a man who was greatly used of God, and is found in the famous "Hall of Fame" in Hebrews 11. We know that he was saved man, but he was a carnal believer. That is, he lived for himself more than did the Lord. He typifies the Christian who resists the will of God and rebels against the ways of God, and suffers the negative consequences of sinful living. The child of God who lives outside the will of God will experience the chastening hand of God the Father. Take a lesson from the life of Samson, and determine that you are going to live for the Lord and not make a wreck of your Christian life. The text is taken from Judges 16:21.
