When Paul reasoned with Felix about righteousness, self-control, and the coming judgment, Felix was alarmed but did not repent. How can someone be so close to the truth, and yet fall short? This problem is more widespread than we think. Many of us also fail to deal with our real issues. We go to church, hear good sermons, do our religious duties, but in the end, we do not actually deal with the real issues in our lives. We need to stop pretending. We need to make sure that we do not respond like Felix. Let's be honest and deal with our real issues. This sermon will challenge the body of Christ to be real and stop pretending.
