And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails. And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing corn of the Philistines, and burnt up both the shocks, and also the standing corn, with the vineyards and olives. Then the Philistines said, Who hath done this? And they answered, Samson, the son in law of the Timnite, because he had taken his wife, and given her to his companion. And the Philistines came up, and burnt her and her father with fire. And Samson said unto them, Though ye have done this, yet will I be avenged of you, and after that I will cease. And he smote them hip and thigh with a great slaughter: and he went down and dwelt in the top of the rock Etam. (Jdg 15:4-8)
GOD desires the deliverance of His people, not only from the circumstances they find themselves in, many of their own making, but also from the sin which leads to such circumstances. GOD has demonstrated His love for all in that He gave His only begotten Son, the ultimate Judge and Deliverer, to conquer sIn and the grave, and to give eternal life to all who will receive it through repentance and by faith in His and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary in our place. He wants to conquer and eliminate the giants and enemies in our live that keep us defeated, that we might serve Him and grow in Him to do His work and accomplish His will in this sinful and broken world, that He might be glorified in all things.
GOD has called, commanded, and commissioned His Church to the work of missions, ministry, discipleship, and evangelism. Sharing the message of Salvation is the scarlet thread that winds through the thrice wound work of the church. He has called us to serve Him, His ambassadors with the Word of reconciliation to minister to those around us who are hurting and in need. He has commanded us to love one another, and to disciple one another that we may all grow through His Word into the full measure of Him who first loved us. He has commissioned us to take the Good News of reconciliation with the Father, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and as we go, tell all who will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that they might repent and believe and have new 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.
