腓力斯害怕
Felix was afraid

Acts 24:24-27

24 过了几天,腓力斯和他的犹太妻子土西拉一同来到,他又传见保罗,听他谈论在耶稣基督里的信仰。 25 保罗讲到公义、自制和将来的审判的时候,腓力斯就害怕起来,说:你先走吧,等我有空的时候再叫你来。 26 同时他也希望保罗送钱给他,所以又多次传见他,和他谈话。27 过了两年,波求.非斯都接了腓力斯的任;腓力斯为要讨好犹太人,就把保罗留在监里。

24 Several days later Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish. He sent for Paul and listened to him as he spoke about faith in Christ Jesus. 25 As Paul talked about righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.” 26 At the same time he was hoping that Paul would offer him a bribe, so he sent for him frequently and talked with him. 27 When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant a favour to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.

 

重点学习

我们首先要学习的是上帝的灵如何深深地影响保罗的心灵和唇舌。

我们必须注意到上帝的审判虽然临到堕落的人,那恐惧却不足以让这些人悔改。腓力斯听到上帝会审判世人后就感到害怕,但他却逃避那令他害怕的审判。可见他的害怕是虚假的忧伤,却没有产生救恩的效果。

这段经文也教导我们当那些令个人备受困扰的缺点被揭发或人的良心被即将临到的审判唤醒时,他们便受到内心深处的省察。

 

Lessons Learn

Let us learn fr4om this, first of all, what great influence the Spirit of God exercised both on Paul’s heart and also on his tongue.

We must note although God’s judgment strikes reprobates, that terror alone does not bring them to repentance. Felix was disturbed when he heard that God will be the Judge of the world, but he ran away from this judgment-seat he was afraid of; so this was false sorrow, which does not work salvation.

This passage also teaches that people are examined to the quick when the faults they are troubled about are brought to light and their consciences are reminded of the coming judgment.
