“We must have the courage to live aware that the kingdom of God is close at hand.”
Breaking Time. [Link to Article on A Slice of Infinity at http://www.RZIM.org]
This incredible article invites us to view “time” differently.
Chronos as the measurable second-to-second, minute-to-minute in which we live in.
Kairos as the immeasurable importance of an event.
Naturally, God does not dwell in chronos, He is ever existent, but He has surprised us and interrupted our chronos with kairos as Jill Carattini mentions in the article.
So, along with Carattini, I would encourage you and myself to be courageous by letting ourselves be absorbed in the eternal kairos.
His everlasting Kingdom is all that matters, even as we live day to day.
His ongoing glory is all we should behold and be amazed at, even while we are still living second by second.
His never ending love is what gives us an opportunity to step into eternity with Him, when we step out of this earthly life.
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
1 Thess 4:16-18 (emphasis added)
