Think you’re strong? Even our best intentions can falter when we face temptation and distraction. Join us as we kick off the summer with a new sermon series called “Samson”, and learn how to stand strong against forces of darkness that want to take us out. Specifically targeting men, this four week series by Lead Pastor Bobby Martin could bring change into our marriages and families.
JUNE 4 – “WHEN STRONG MEN ARE WEAK”
Samson is the biblical Hercules, a man of super-human strength whose accomplishments are legendary. But so are his weaknesses. Like Samson, we all have tremendous God-given potential. But if we are not careful, then just like Samson, we will self destruct.
JUNE 11 – “EMOTIONS THAT BRING A STRONG MAN DOWN”
Men don’t like to think of themselves as emotional – but they are. Samson succumbed to some emotions which neutralized his effectiveness. When they are emotion driven instead of Spirit led, strong men will go down.
JUNE 18 – “SMALL STEPS TOWARD BIG DESTRUCTION”
When a strong man goes down, it’s not usually all at once. There are small choices along the way that eventually lead to a massive fall. Samson didn’t ruin his life all at once. He ruined it one step at a time. Like Samson, we may be down, but we don’t have to be out. There’s still hope if we’ll turn around.
JUNE 25 – “FAILING FORWARD”
What do you do when you know you’ve blown it? How do you deal with wasted opportunities, saying things you shouldn’t, and doing things you shouldn’t? Just because you’ve failed at something doesn’t mean you’re a failure. There are just some “pillars” you need to push down in order to have a better future.
