Righteousness; Temperance; Judgement
A Sermon on Acts 24:24-27
After some days Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish, and he sent for Paul and heard him speak about faith in Christ Jesus. 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.” At the same time he hoped that money would be given him by Paul. So he sent for him often and conversed with him. When two years had elapsed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus. And desiring to do the Jews a favor, Felix left Paul in prison. (ESV)
The characters of Felix and Drusilla; the Gospel will always make one feel uncomfortable; the first question of the Gospel : righteousness; and what it is; the judgement to come; the effect and power of sin.
