Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Acts 24:25

“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.”

“This is the way men are continually acting. They hear the truth and feel its power—but put off action. Felix was not true to his own best interests. He was not honest with himself. He saw the wrong in his own life; he had a glimpse of the judgment; he was terrified; he knew what he ought to do—yet he put the matter off. He did not doubt the truth of what Paul said, he did not actually reject the Savior Paul offered; he merely postponed action. Some other time, he would find it more convenient to adjust his life to the requisite condition.This is a well-trodden highway, and there always are thousands upon it. They believe the Word of God, and are terrified when they think of the solemn facts of eternity. They mean to turn and be saved—but they put it off. There will be a more convenient season by and by. It is a terribly mistaken way to go. The best time to repent and be saved—is always NOW. A more convenient season will never come. Countless thousands have been lost by saying tomorrow when they should have said today.” (copied)Are you one thatkeeps putting off calling on the Lord?Don’t put it off any longer call on him today.

If our sins were laid on Jesus Christ—they are covered forever
