3 reflections from the 'Samson' movie
Christian movies have popped up in cinemas in recent years, all of them attempting to reach out to Christians and non-Christians alike, hoping to present the truth about God and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
The most recent Bible-based movie that was released showed us who Samson is. This man, famous for his supernatural strength and apparent liking for a woman named Delilah, was introduced in a very humbling and profound way in the movie.
For me personally, the movie gave me various lessons on being a child of God, a husband, and a man who, like all of us who believe in Christ, is given the great commission.
And so without further ado, let me share to you a few reflections from Pure Flix's "Samson" movie.
1) That Samson, despite his special call, was still a human
We see Samson as a strong man, yet he himself would always pray to God for strength. That's a very humbling realization.
Many of us rely on our God-given gifts. Worship singers rely on their voices, preachers rely on their skills in delivering the message, but Samson relied on God, not on his own God-given strength.
It's very humbling to think that Samson, knowing that he was strong, would ask God for strength.
