“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.”—Acts 24:25.
(ESV-And as he reasoned about righteousness and self-control and the coming judgment, Felix was alarmed and said, “Go away for the present. When I get an opportunity I will summon you.”)
In this passage, we see the Apostle Paul, once again on trial for his life. Instead of being timid, Paul passionately preached the Gospel to Felix, until he trembled (KJV) or was alarmed (ESV.)
Then he responded with, “When it is CONVENIENT I’ll call you back.” “When I get a chance, I’ll think about God.” Apparently, Felix trembles and believes he can put off thinking about God, righteousness and judgment for a better time, a more convenient season!
