The Jazz Theologian

The, “I wish I were mo’ better” blues. (p3)

Sampson must have sung the blues.

Chosen from birth to be set apart for God though he never seemed to have recognized how special that was.  Perhaps he took it for granted or thought that everyone had that experience.  Over the course of his life he kept compromising the promise of God on his life until on day he revealed to the infamous, Delilah, the secret to his power. 

The tragedy:  gouged-out eyes, shackled and in prison, head shaved though the stubble was returning.

The comic hope:  He accomplished more in his death than in his life (Judges 16)

The blues come when we feel we have hit bottom…so does God!
