Kairos is the brand of time most often mentioned in the New Testament. You won’t find it on the hands of the dial or the digital numbers on a screen. Instead, kairos refers more to a decisive time — the right time, the appropriate time. The writers of the New Testament seem to understand kairos in relation to the moment when God intervenes or is about to intervene in human history. But the word can also mean the time that God’s people have to prepare for the ultimate kairos, thus Paul’s admonition to the Ephesians to “[make] the most of the time [kairos] because the days are evil” (v. 16).
