Samson's birth is announced by an angel: a child predestined to be used by God to deliver His people. Over and over, we hear that he is to be a life-long Nazirite, dedicated to God. This is a living sacrifice. Aside from any measure of how well or poorly Samson lives up to his calling, his calling as a dedicated living sacrifice serves as a model to us of true Christian living. Dedicated in ministry. Dedicated in love.
