Convenience vs. Availability

"After some days Felix came with his wife Drusilla,

who was Jewish, and he sent for Paul

and heard him speak about faith in Jesus Christ.  

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. "

Acts 24:24-25 ESV

       Paul was in prison.  Felix was govenor.  He had power, he thought, over Paul.  He was kind to Paul in allowing some liberty and for his friends to minister to him.  

       One day Felix decided to hear what Paul had to say.  Paul shared the gospel as he always did.  As he spoke Felix was affected.  

     He was under conviction as the Holy Spirit moved in him through Paul's words.  It frightened him.  How many hear God's message of salvation through Jesus Christ and become alarmed when it begins to speak to their lives?

     How many people hear the gospel and say, "God, I don't have time to listen right now.  Come back later."

     How many of God's children coast through life without seeking to hear God's plan for their lives?  "God, I'll listen when I want to hear what You have to say."

     "God, I'll serve You at a more convenient time." "Not today Lord.  I don't have time to help others.  Maybe tomorrow I'll have the opportunity to do so."

     How many say, "After I've had my fun then I'll think about it.  Don't bother me now.  I'm busy living my life. "

     Our convenience doesn't matter to God.  Our availability is all that matters.  

Father,

Forgive my excuses.

Renew my commitment to You and Your kinddom work.

I want to always be available to Your Spirit's leading.

In Jesus Christ's most precious name,

Amen
