Drawing from the example of Paul’s ministry to Felix, we see that no excuse is good enough to put off coming to Jesus. When Paul spoke on righteousness, self-control, and the judgment, Felix became afraid and dismissed Paul until a more “convenient time”. We examine the elements of Paul’s message and see that Felix was right to be afraid but completely wrong not to come to Christ on the pretext that it was not convenient or timely at that moment. We see that it is both dangerous and foolish to react to the Gospel as Felix did, as the only time we are guaranteed to seek salvation is now.
