Paul is in Caesarea and has been accused by the Jewish leaders of crimes against the law. Paul has defended himself against the lies, and Felix has decided to wait until Lysias the commander who sent him there arrives to present the case. Meanwhile, Felix wants to know more about “the Way” and invites Paul on several occasions to speak to him about Jesus. But when the conversation turns to matters of lifestyle change and final judgment, Felix is done – he does not want to talk about Jesus any more. He’ll send for Paul “when it’s convenient.” I wonder how much of my connection to Jesus is one of convenience? How willing am I to follow him until he begins to ask hard things of me – until my living needs to change based on the things he asks of me? Do I take Jesus seriously until he makes the hard ask, and then dismiss him for the sake of convenience?
