27 King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know that you do believe.”
28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.”
☆24 And after some days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish, he sent for Paul and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
25 Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, “Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you.”
Both King Agrippa and Felix were caught in the web of procrastination.
When Paul was brought before King Agrippa, Paul, as a member of the Learned Profession put up a spectacular defence that nearly converted the judge to Christianity. The judge admitted he was almost persuaded. I guess he simply resisted because he wanted to remain with the established Jewish religion than convert to Christianity which was facing much opposition at that time.
Likewise, Felix also wanted a more convenient timeto become converted. As to whether that more convenient time came, your guess is as good as mine.
Friends, Bible says Today, when we hear His voice, we shouldn’t harden our hearts. Jesus also said “I must do the work of Him that sent me while it is day. Behold, night cometh, when no man can work“.
Let’s do whatever we know we haveto do today; be it spiritual, academic, professional, investment etc. Night is certainly coming.
One of the greatest regrets in life is to be unable to achieve what you know you could have achieved but for procrastination. May we never have that regret in life.
May we receive strength from above to overcome our fears. May every excuse be cancelled by the power of the Holy Spirit in the Name of Jesus. May we be achievers beyond our wildest imagination. Amen.
