One of my favorite books over the last several years is Thomas Kelly’s A Testament of Devotion. He helped me see that experiencing the God’s presence is possible for all Christians. If God’s presence is possible for all Christians, then kairos moments (Tuesday’s post) will become more clear in the midst of everyday life.
Although his writing takes a little getting used to, his insights are well worth the moderate effort. Here’s a quote from him to encourage you today:
[People] nowadays take time far more seriously than eternity…Time is no judge of Eternity. It is the Eternal who is the judge and tester of time.
The possibility of this experience of [God’s] Presence, as a repeatedly realized and present fact, and its transforming and transfiguring effect upon all life…Once discover this glorious secret, this new dimension of life, and we no longer live merely in time but we live also in the Eternal.
We live our lives at two levels simultaneously, the level of time and the level of the Timeless.
