The LORD told Moses to say to the people of Israel: If any of you want to dedicate yourself to me by vowing to become a Nazirite, you must no longer drink any wine or beer or use any kind of vinegar. Don’t drink grape juice or eat grapes or raisins—not even the seeds or skins. Even the hair of a Nazirite is sacred to me, and as long as you are a Nazirite, you must never cut your hair. During the time that you are a Nazirite, you must never go close to a dead body, not even that of your father, mother, brother, or sister. That would make you unclean. Your hair is the sign that you are dedicated to me, so remain holy.
(Numbers 6:1-6 CEV)
Before Samson was born, God appointed him to be a Nazarite – a person consecrated to God. As such, Samson couldn’t cut his hair, drink fermented drinks or go near a dead body. Anyone looking on the outside would know that Samson was dedicated to God in a special way. Sadly, Samson didn’t live as a Nazarite. He became so polluted by the world he lived in that he became like the people that didn’t know God. God continues to call Nazarites – people who are willing to live godly lifestyles that reflect their relationship to Him, so that people looking on the outside will be drawn to the Saviour.
Live a godly life.
