Our sermon series on the life of Samson wraps up today.  After 20 years of judging Israel in the days of the Philistines, he once more falls in love with a Philistine woman, Delilah.  She is successful in learning from him the secret of his great strength and betrays him to her people.  Samson is captured, shackled and blinded and placed between the pillars of their temple honouring their god.  As he had in the past when helpless, Samson called out to the Lord, asking that he be avenged and die with the Philistines.  His prayer was answered.  With a last show of strength, he pushed away the pillars.  The temple collapsed and crushed everyone in it, including himself.   Samson's story reminds us that regardless of our flaws and weaknesses, God is always with us.
