What thought comes to your mind when you think of a K or a series of them?
- If you are a fan of the Kansas City Royals, you probably think of Kauffman Stadium when you think of a K.
- When most people think of KKK, the Ku Klux Klan comes to mind.
- The KKK plus 17 may have never entered your mind until today.
The 20-K club is one of the world’s most exclusive groups, and it consists of just 4 members. The 4th member was added last night in an amazing performance by Max Scherzer–he struck out 20 Detroit Tigers last night! When Scherzer trotted off the mound last night, he walked into the record books, and his name now appears alongside of Randy Johnson, Kerry Wood and Roger Clemens (who recorded 20 K’s twice).
While Scherzer’s 20 K performance gained him admission into an exclusive club, it’s not the most significant membership in the world. The one of most significance is not entered by performance, but through a person—Jesus Christ:
Whosoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. ~Romans 10:13
The K in the case of Romans 10:13 is the Kairos. The ancient Greek’s defined the right or opportune moment in which a person could do something or make a change as their Kairos moment. The present is always the Karios moment to join the “whosoever” club:
“Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day might bring (Proverbs 27:1).”
