The adjournment

The adjournment

Acts 24:22 “Then Felix, who was well acquainted with the Way, adjourned the proceedings. “When Lysias the commander comes,” he said, “I will decide your case.”

The adjournment would mean that Paul would remain in custody for 2 years.

But that is only half the story.

The adjournment would also mean:

Paul would have several sessions of witnessing to Felix and his wife Drusilla.

Paul most likely wrote to the Philippians from there.

Paul took the opportunity to share with Luke the parts of the story that he had not witnessed which were vital for his gospel and the book of Acts.

The adjournment was not wasted time.

You might be waiting for something but God is using this time and soon the time will be over (v27) and you will look back and see what God has done.
