SUMMER SCHOOL 2018: 25 Dec 2018 – 2 Jan 2019, Blue Skies
Bro Con Mitsos — The power of the resurrection
There can be no doubt that the greatest event in the history of the world was the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. For four thousand years, mankind was subject to the law of sin and death. This would continue for two thousand more. Billions of people have lived and now lie in the grave under the power of death, except one. One who was raised to immortality and over whom death has no power. In his victory over sin and death is the key that unlocks the grave and at the command of his voice, the dead in Christ shall rise.
Bro Sam Bailey — Samson: Moved by God at times
Samson, the last of the judges, was born when the spiritual ebb of the nation was at an all-time low. A period marked by idolatry, deceit and national instability, where every man did that which was right in his own eyes. A time when leadership had failed, and worse, the nation didn’t even realise they needed salvation. Yet, by direct intervention, God moved to begin to save His people.
Over the course of our studies, we’ll be struck by a man who struggled with his weaknesses and who failed spectacularly. But in these trials, God worked to bring about His purpose. Through the record Samson’s thoughtful, spiritual and discerning mind is evident whilst epitomizing the struggles of the people he sought to save. A leader his peers rejected. A man who grasped the meaning of the patriarchal promises. A warrior who understood forgiveness. A judge whose strength was made perfect in weakness. A Nazarite who ultimately learned dependence and obedience by the things which he suffered.
It is these insights and lessons from his life that highlights how God works in our lives, often through trials, to teach us His will and to do His good pleasure.
