Christ: Christ is in All #3

“In Every Moment”

When we affirm that Christ is in all, we easily connect the statement to people, places and things. The previous meditations have done this by noting Christ is in everyone and everything. But there is more. Christ is in all time, in every moment. We meditate on that here.

Adding Christ’s presence in every moment transports us further into oneness and nonduality. Far from being abstract, Christ in all time saves us from seeing Christ some of the time, but not all of the time. Christ in all time saves us from believing God is here, but not there.

Christ in all time is summed up in the word ‘Emmanuel.’
God is with us. Jesus said it, “I am with you always “ The affirmation that Christ is in all time is easy to lose sight of in challenging times. It is easy to think God is absent

But to say Christ is in all is to include every moment of our lives. This vision is precisely what we need if our spirituality is to have the tenacity necessary to be strong, to endure hard times, and not give way to despair.
