Kairos time

The Greek uses two words for time - chronos and kairos.

Chronos refers to time as we know it - the past, the present, the future, that is kept by the seconds, minutes, and hours. That is chornos time, and you can see this is where we get the word chronology.

Kairos is quite different. Kairos refers to a God-appointed time. Kairos refers to a moment and an epoch in time where God has opened the window of opportunity. The thing about kairos time is that it is only for a time period. It comes and it can disappear just as quickly.

The wise and discerning person is always looking for kairos moments - those moments when God opens the opportunity for us to be a blessing to others and to seek God's blessing.

God is up to something great in your life. Seek to discover what God is up to and join Him in that work. You don't want to miss out!
