Why Not Today? Something To Think About!

This morning in my Quiet Time I was reading about Paul witnessing to Felix and his wife Drusilla. Paul had been accused unjustly and now the Roman governor had him in bondage.

Acts 24:24-25, And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jew, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgement to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time: whine I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

This man and his wife was being given a chance to accept Christ and did not! They heard about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and would not turn to the Lord. They even heard about the judgement to come and still refused salvation.

This could have discouraged Paul but it did not. You and I see this sort of thing even today. The gospel is preached and many hear but they walk out of the church not knowing Christ. Do not be discouraged! Our job is to go and tell and trust that the Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin. Some will turn to Christ and others will not! Rejoice when someone comes to Christ and pray for those who don’t!
