Wisdom For Each Day – November 10, 2014

Paul was under arrest, and the Roman governor Felix had full authority either to release him or keep him in jail.  Rather than flatter Felix or try to win his favor, however, Paul instead spoke openly to him about Christ.  Finally Felix had had enough; he ordered Paul to leave, promising to listen more fully “when I find it convenient.”

Hoping for a bribe (which Paul wouldn’t give), Felix did send for him repeatedly – but two years later Paul was still in jail, and Felix was still and unbeliever.

Don’t wait until a more convenient time to give your life to Christ; the devil will make sure it never happens.

As Paul discoursed on righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now!  You may leave.  When I find it convenient, I will send for you.”

Acts 24:25
