Preview: Glance through the questions for today’s reading so they will be fresh on your mind.
Read: Acts 24:1-27
He (Felix), ordered the centurion to keep Paul _______________ but to give him some _______________ and permit his friends to take care of his needs.
Why was the governor, Felix, afraid when Paul talked to him about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come?
What was Felix hoping Paul would offer him? ________________________________
Why did Felix leave Paul in prison after his term as governor had ended?
Reflect and Apply:
Others’ judgment makes us feel unworthy, angry, and/or sad. What about the judgment Paul speaks of? Does the Lord’s judgment frighten you or comfort you knowing He loves you and wants the best for you just as a parent with a child? Does His judgment motivate you to act out of fear or out of love? Explain.
Going Beyond: Write out today’s scripture in a journal or notebook.
