Part 2 – Samson v Samuel
Have you ever heard the expression “living a parallel life?” It’s when two people living in different spaces are experiencing the same things in their lives. This is the story of Samson and Samuel in the Bible. From their miraculous births to their divine callings to their eventual positions of influence, these two guys are living “parallel lives” within God’s community. But like many men today who live within the community of faith, our public identity often conflicts with our private demons and realities. The flesh is at war with the Spirit. Our old nature is at war with our new nature. Our identity in Christ calls for integrity of actions. These are battles Samson and Samuel fought and so will you.
