And Manoah said unto The Angel of the LORD, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour? And The Angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after My Name, seeing it is secret? So Manoah took a kid with a meat offering, and offered it upon a rock unto the LORD: and the angel did wondrously; and Manoah and his wife looked on. For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that The Angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground. But The Angel of the LORD did no more appear to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that He was an Angel of the LORD. And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen GOD. (Jdg 13:17-22)
GOD has a plan for His people, and when He wants to do something and shew Himself strong in the behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him, He uses His people and calls us to the work, not because of our strengths or our abilities or our gifts, for those all come from Him and He knows us better than we know ourselves, but that He will be glorified in the work in and through us. Samson's parents weren't anything special, nor would Samson do every thing right in the sight of the Lord, but it was GOD that was doing the work. When we trust Him and rely solely on Him for our strength and instruction, He can and will accomplish great things through us, not for our glory, but for the glory of the Lord who alone is worthy of all praise, honour, and blessing.
Today, GOD works through His Church to accomplish His will and to do His work in this broken and sinful world. He calls His ambassadors to reach out as ministers of reconciliation and minister to those around us who are hurting and in need. He commands His disciples to love one another, with the unfeigned love of the brethren, and to equip, edify, and encourage one another as we grow in His Word and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ until we are all grown up into the full measure of Him. He commissions each of us to the proclaiming of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching those that hear and believe the Good News all things whatsoever He has commanded us, that those who repent of their sins and trust Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
