Running with Jesus


Acts 24:24-25"And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. 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."


     Felix liked to talk to Paul and called often to talk about the way of faith, but when Paul began to talk about righteousness, temperance and judgment it became too personal. He began to squirm. I read where he too had taken another man's wife, conviction and self conscience had set in and guilt  began to take place in his soul. He then sent Paul away.

     Shhh!  Don't talk about sin! Isn't this what happens when we are witnessing to a person? We can talk all day about our work and life but don't start talking about sin!

     Sin, what is it? Oh our world doesn't say that word anymore! Sin is transgressing the laws of God. Excuse me, that is right, there are no Ten Commandments! Then we wonder why we live in a decaying society. Murder, adultery, lying and stealing has bombarded our society on every side! Yelp, evidence of a Godless society! Evil will always prevail when God is left out of the equation. 

  I hate to say this but our government officials and our court system, who make our laws, do not want to talk about sin because so many live outside God's laws and they do not  want to change their life styles! The Bible says their eyes are blinded by the god of this world, the prince of this world old Satan himself. Oh he isn't wearing a red suit and carrying a pitch fork. He is dressed as an angel of light in black suits and ties sowing his dirty work to lead people away from God.


Father, we pray for those in authority over us. We pray the eyes of their understanding will be open to truth. Enable them to make laws that once stood upon Your principles. Father we pray for wisdom to discern who we need to vote for as we approach a new election year.  


Stuck and waiting, in the morning!
