AIM: To teach my class the good and bad about the Judge of Israel named Samson.

POINT OF CONTACT: Ask the class, "Who is the strongest man alive today?" "And who can you think of that was very strong in the Bible?" Perhaps they will name Samson. Ask someone to describe what they think Samson would look like. Contrary to what most think, he was not a big, muscular man!

     B. Any time a person leaves the will of God, they are headed down!

         2. Pick up the wrong appetites and desires 14:2
         3. Quickly leave and forget God's will for your life 14:3
         4. Trade your "raising" for what pleases your 5 senses.
         5. Cause others to go down also! 14:5 You NEVER go down alone! Someone is watching and following your example!
         6. Always be warned by God 14:5 God sent a lion to warn Samson about leaving his separated position.

IV. GOD'S SPIRIT GAVE SAMSON HIS STRENGTH 14:6
     A. God's Spirit gives men supernatural strength today as well!
     B. God still had access to Samson, even though he was in the wrong place! Proverbs 15:3.

     C. When you get the lady God has prepared for you, she will please you for life.
     D. Satan could not get to Samson, except through a woman.
     E. Satan knows a man's weak spot is a woman!
     F. Satan got to Adam, Abraham, Saul, David, Solomon, Samson... through a woman, and he can get to you the same way!

VI. SAMSON GETS PROUD AND GREEDY 14:8-14

     B. Now at his party, he becomes greedy and makes a bet with his new friends.
