Kairos (n.) the perfect, delicate, crucial moment; the fleeting rightness of time and place that creates the opportune atmosphere for action, words, or movement; also, weather ⊶ ☾ ╼ ☾ ⊶ ☾ ╼ ☾ ⊶ ☾ ╼
Kairos, from a biblical perspective, is God's dimension - one unmarked by the past, present, or future. It is God’s "right time" or "appointed season" (Titus 1:3). When Jesus came, it was the fulfillment of everything, a tearing of the veil so we could sit with Him in person; a cosmic collision of the sacred and secular. It was God’s holy intervention in order to save humanity from itself. The arrival of Christ was the perfect moment as it was God’s kairos piercing its way into creation at just the right time.
When Jesus died on the cross, it was another kairos moment (Romans 5:6-8); these events are glimpses of Gods work being done in our lives— for a generation that was and for all those to come, whether we acknowledge it as true or not. In these times, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to recognise such things especially when our prospects appear bleak as a result of storms we might be standing in. Rather then seeking God’s advice, we tend to sway toward our own understanding, oblivious to the handiwork being done in us. So many distractions blind us from His will, and more importantly, in being thankful for all the times He has intersected on our behalf.
As Christmas approaches hand in hand with the New Year, remember that God has and always will prioritise you and your needs, even down to the simplest of things, because you matter. He is filling your life with beautiful moments, even when we fail to see them right away... so take time to reminisce, and pause to truly look around. There will always be grace and redemption, because His kairos timing is perfect.
