the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention:
Felix Before the Gospel Came
Felix was a Roman Procurator at the time that the apostle Paul came before him for his judgment as to an accusation made against him by the Jews.
God's Attempt to Save Felix
This man Felix was of such disposition that he would not go seeking to learn the truth, God's terms of pardon. Yet God made a special concession to him in that even though Felix did not seek out the truth, yet in God's benevolent providence, Felix did have opportunity to hear gospel preaching from the mouth of God's servant, Paul.
Felix's Fatal Mistake
While Felix should rightly be in terror after Paul's preaching his fatal mistake was in his manner of responding to the righteous demands of gospel preaching. He said to Paul. "Go thy way for this time; and when I have a convenient season, I will call thee unto me" (Acts 24:25).
When is a convenient season to put away sin?
This is the last time the Bible mentions Felix. So far as we know he died waiting for a convenient season; thousands of others have and will do likewise.
