For the next 20 years Samson is with God’s people. The Philistines are still in control, but they don’t want to mess with Samson. But they do what to find something out. What makes him strong.
Then the text says there’s this women of ill-repute and Samson decides he wants to go down and be her “friend.” The Philistines see this and they say, “Hmmmmmmm Samson’s in town and now we know how to get to him. Hey Delilah come over here! Delilah! You need to get close to Samson and find out what makes him so strong!”

Have you ever done that? Have you set out trusting God, having faith in God, only to have a plan B in your hip pocket? If God promises it He will fulfill it!

Hey Pilate. We noticed you wrote, “King of the Jews.” Could you rewrite that please? Could you please write, ‘He says he’s the King of the Jews?” Pilate looks at them and says, ‘I wrote what I wrote!” I’m not going to change what I wrote because it’s going to tickle your little ears!
People are going to try to get us to rewrite the story of Jesus. We need to look at them with confidence and say, “I said what I said!”

And as Barabbas walks away a free man I picture Jesus standing there, looking at Barabbas. He doesn’t say anything. He doesn’t proclaim his innocence. He just looks at Barabbas… He stands there guilty of something he did not do. He just locks eyes with Barabbas. Who’s Barabbas?… Barabbas is you and Barabbas is me. We are guilty. Yet He pays our punishment. Because love says, “I’ll take that!”

What are we willing to give Jesus? And that’s really the point of our end times study. If it takes us any place else than humility and any other place than loving Jesus, I think we’re in the wrong place.”

When the widow shows up to the Temple and she drops off her offering, literally that’s all she has to live on. When we look at $.75 or $1.50 we think, “That’s just a candy bar.” But to her, that’s all she had to live on. If you have much, much is required of you. But if you don’t have much, and you give everything you have, that’s a powerful thing!

God became man and He died like a man, too. And when He died like a man he knew fully what it meant to be a man.

I believe we challenge the authority of Jesus when we sin. We look at Jesus and say, “I know I shouldn’t do this, but I’m going to do this anyway.”
