Biblically speaking, the overarching entity of TIME is chronos, while the moments that make it up are kairos (“the right measure and relation, especially concerning time and place”). 2015 will be The Time (kairos) of Your Life (chronos). Each kairos moment represents a “Photo Op!” that is, an opportunity for you to say or do something that will show up in The Book of Your Life when the Lord appears. A KAIROS moment is better than a KODAK moment.
As we learn in the ODWTC segment, “God’s Foreknowledge and Man’s Free Will,” God relates to us in a linear manner, and each day we are literally “walking into life” as it comes at us moment-by-moment, opportunity by opportunity. God and the Lord Jesus are flanking you on your path of righteousness, and their peripheral vision greatly exceeds yours.
Kind of like Jimmy Stewart, aka George Bailey, was able to do in A Wonderful Life, it is always beneficial to step back and take a look at your life in the overall perspective of His-Story. From His Word we see that our Father is constantly working in situations we yet know nothing about—either to bring us good or to stop evil from harming us. Our responsibility is to seek Him first, so that we are ready to step up in faith when the time comes, “ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you for the reason of the hope you have.”
This dynamic teaching examines some enlightening uses of the word kairos, and shows how you can be at the right place at the right time to say or do the right thing for the right person.
