🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: Judges 16.
📚 When God Is With You, It's Never Over!. 💪
(Judges 16:22) But before long, his hair began to grow back.
Observation: Samson is such a complex person in the Bible. He does so many things wrong, and God still uses him. He gives many of us hope. If God will still use Samson, he can still use us. The greatest part of Samson's story is the redemption. I cannot imagine how much defeat and shame Samson must have felt as he went around and around the grain press in the dungeon. He had lost everything. Then, one day he tries to flick a fly off his shoulder only to realize it's his hair growing back. His hair was a symbol of his covenant with God. Even on the worst day and even when we make the worst decisions, there is always a way back. God never gives up on us.
Application: It's never too late to come back to God.

📚 Book of the Week. William Tyndale: The Smuggler’s Flame. (Lori Rich)
William Tyndale lived a life of adventure and danger, dodging the king’s men, fleeing from his enemies, and meeting with smugglers in the dead of night. What brought a well–educated young English man to such a state? Was he an outlaw? Was he a thief? No – he was a Bible smuggler and a brave one at that. Tyndale wanted other English speakers to be able to read God’s word in their own language but there were many who tried to put a stop to that. However, Tyndale’s work was God’s and would not be stopped – even after Tyndale’s death. One day there was a translation of the Bible in the English language and it lit a fire in people’s hearts that would not be put out.
