Acts 24:24-26 Drawing from the example of Paul’s ministry to Felix, we see that no excuse is good enough to put off coming to Jesus. When Paul spoke on righteousness, self-control, and the judgment, Felix became afraid and dismissed Paul until a more „convenient time„.

We take a practical look at how forgiveness should be worked out in the Christian life. We consider whom we should forgive, when we should forgive them, why we should forgive them, and what true forgiveness is.
