Judges 14:1-4

Rev. Tyler Dirks


Sermon Audio


Sermon Outline:

  1. Our Preferences
  2. Pushback
  3. God’s Purposes

Reflection Questions:

  1. Imagine the pain and disappointment Samson’s parents felt when their son was adamant about marrying a Philistine lady. When was a time that someone else’s preference caused you deep pain and disappointment?
  2. When was a time you were demanding about an unhealthy preference? How does – you pedestaling your preferences – cause other people deep pain and disappointment?
  3. When was a time someone actually loved you enough to PUSHBACK against your unhealthy preferences and demands?
  4. When was a time you rigorously prayed through a Psalm, and eventually you arrived at the realization that God was intimately, subversively, and sovereignly orchestrating His Agenda amidst chaos, pain, and/or disappointing situations?
