    To decide to delay is to decide to deny.

    When I was around 10 years old, my grandma gave me a bunch of unused stamps and told me to hang on to them because they’d be worth a lot of money in the future. For the past 50 years I’ve known I had them in a file but never got around to checking on their value. Thinking this would make for a more

  • Paul’s Message Before Governor Felix Series

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on Feb 9, 2022

    We see that Paul is faithful to Jesus Christ in whatever his circumstance. He faced numerous attempts on his life. He was on trial and struck in the face. In all these hardships Paul remained steadfast and whenever he had the chance, he shared the gospel with Governor Felix.

    The Background of Paul before Felix Here we find Paul in Caesarea standing before Felix the governor. Paul recently completed his third missionary journey and now he is beginning his Jerusalem to Rome ministry. Right before he went to Jerusalem, he stopped in Caesarea to visit Philip the more

  • Acts Of The Apostles 35 Of 39

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Mar 14, 2022

    In Acts twenty-four we find the apostle Paul is being held in custody as a common criminal, waiting for his accusers to arrive, and is to appear before Antonius Felix, the governor of Judaea.

    Felix was a politician in every sense of the word. He had risen from being a subservient person, to the position of Governor of Judaea. He got his start through the influence of his brother at the imperial court of Claudius. He married three Princesses, which also elevated his career. The first more

  • Dodging Decisions Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jun 21, 2021

    What is often passed off as indecisiveness or propriety or procrastination is a dishonest attempt to keep from honoring what is right and fair. We can see Felix’s motives as an example. We can also see how God can use such red tape.

    Dodging Decisions (Acts 24:1-27) 1. So today we honor our graduates, and we honor our fathers. 2. I will honor our graduates with a joke: Why did Mary want to work at a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet even though she'd received her B.A. degree? Because it had been on her bucket list for a long more

  • Encouraging Dads To Tell Their Story Series

    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 8, 2021

    You see, the gospel is not just something you hold onto but the gospel has its hold on you. The power of the Gospel on a person is most evident when you see its hold on a person.

    Happy Father’s Day! Dads, there are too few good fathers around. Dads, I want to speak to encourage you to deepen your commitment to living a life of integrity in Christ. To know Jesus is to have a story of how you came to know Jesus. This story is often referred to as your “testimony.” In fact, more

  • Paul Imprisoned Series

    Contributed by Rev. Andrew B Natarajan on Oct 8, 2021

    It is painful to learn that religious people join hands with wicked rulers, leaders, and those in power. So-called religious leaders indeed go to any extreme to trouble the saints for their survival.

  • Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide

    Contributed by Craig Condon on May 25, 2015

    Paul and David had clear consciences when they did what was right. We can also have clear consciences when we do what is right. A good conscience will help us make choices and take actions that are appropriate to God's kingdom.

    The readings from Acts 24:1-23 and 2 Samuel 19:1-23 deal with how we can use our consciences to deal with the consequences of rebellion. In the reading we just heard from Acts 24:1-23, Paul has been arrested and is appearing before the governor Felix to answer the charges against him. Tartullus, more

  • I Must Have Been Wrong

    Contributed by Richard Overman on Mar 24, 2012

    Reflection upon the rightness & wrongness of Christian thinking. Allowing the congregation to be stirred up by deciding if all preaching is just vanity
