kairos and chronos unite

in our community we have what we call "kairos moments." they are those moment and times when numerous experiences, strands of knowledge and heart felt core convictions collide at a given moment to give us a heighten sense of awareness about reality, the divine, and the world, to such a degree that one must make a decision that shapes one's destiny.

one of those kind of moments is when a person begins their journey with Christ and passes from life to death. for in the greek, "kairos" is used in the verse where it says, "today is the day of your salvation." this an example of a kairos moment. but anybody who starts that walk with God will have a number of other kinds of "kairos moments" along the way. moments that can shape our direction, our daily habits as well as our energy level and motivation.

i have recently experience another "kairos moment" in understanding in regards to the absolute beauty of the 'good news' we have to share with a needy world.

what i have found important to do after experiencing a "kairos moment" is to take time to process it, and then seek God on the steps He wants us to take, so that the "moment" becomes actualized in our everyday lives. for then that moment expands along the line of our "chronos" existence. that is when kairos and chronos unite to create a different level of existence.

Good thought on this connnection...I think many kairos moments are wasted without reflection that assures their continued reality. We can be dramatically changed or moved, then forget it by breakfast next morning.

In the time of Kairos, all is well. All is perfect, whole and complete.
