What Shall I Do With Jesus?: Felix

In Acts 24, Paul had the chance to preach to Felix. Felix was the governor of Judea and was noted for his great corruption. Paul not only preached to him, but his unlawful wife, Druscilla. Acts 24:24 says,“And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” So in response to our question we have asked over the last several weeks, Felix wanted to postpone Him.

Our greatest enemy is tomorrow. More things have gone undone because we wait until tomorrow. Satan does not have to destroy your faith in God, your belief in things necessary. All he has to do is get you to wait until tomorrow. In Acts 2:37, when Peter convicted those men of killing Jesus, Luke records, “Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?” “Pricked” figuratively meant “to be violently agitated.” They felt the anguish of sin and acted upon it! But what about the next day? What if they had waited until the feeling diminished?

Now is the day to act on your salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” If you put it off, even with good intentions, you may never turn back to the Lord. What will YOU do with Jesus?
