Judges 16:17 “That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak and be like any other man.”

In order to maintain the sanctity of the Nazarene, God places some restrictions on their lives. It is not for punishment or torture, it is simply meant to preserve them, keep them holy unto the Lord and make sure their will is always attuned to the will of God.

That was why God placed trees in the garden but commanded man not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:17 “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”

The reason is very simple, God gave man a will power and by doing that He gave man the power of choice. That was a very interesting risk He took there but the main aim is for the man to have the ability to make his own choices and decisions including the choice of not serving God!

God loves man so much such that anyone that goes to Hell decided to go there of his own volition and God will respect that! Man is not a zombie, the will power is one of the abilities that makes God superior and omnipotent. So, God placed the same ability in man.

A man that chooses not to serve God is simply exercising his will power and God respects it. If such a man end up in Hell, he can’t blame God.

Any authority without restrictions and boundaries will be absolute, wild and uncontrollable. So boundaries helps to keep power in check.

Therefore, even though we have authority in Christ, there are restrictions that helps to keep it in check, tamed and potent.

Apostle Paul knew this for a truth that’s why he said:
