Hic et nunc

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from everyone one of us: For in him we live, and move and have our being.....

Acts 17:27-28


No, the title is not a typo. It is a Latin phrase, meaning : Here and now. Often we think, one day God is going to do such and such thing and we certainly have a most wonderful future for sure. But we need not forget he is the God of the here and now. I sometimes seem to be a long term optimist but a short term pessimist. Meaning I know for sure in the long run, God is

going to work all things out. But in the short term I seem to struggle with believing him to do it, here and now. Perhaps you are the same at times. In our scripture Paul reminds us that he is very present with us right now. We tend to say and think that God is way up there somewhere and in one way he is. But in another way he is right near, now. The Holy Spirit being the active agent of God in the earth. So we can fellowship with him at any moment we are willing to take the time.We can have his help in the present moment, not having to wait to get to church or an altar or a priest. You can talk with him any time or all the time. As a matter of fact he promises to be an ever present help in times of trouble. Today, don’t wait for a certain time or place to be with God. Enjoy him in the hic et nunc.
