Faithful | Week 5 (Odessa)

Randy Unruh wraps up our series on the Faithfulness of God by looking at the story of Samson. Randy shows us how Samson, who throughout his life had allowed himself to be defined by his mistakes and failures, at the end saw his life defined instead by the faithfulness of God. Samson was able to recover from his mistakes, as we are, by Gods faithfulness. We learn through this message that we can all be ordinary people in the hands of an extraordinary God.
