The Ascension marked the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The period of human limitation was at an end. Jesus now rules with His Father in Heaven. His period of humility was coming to an end and he returned exalted in Heaven.
We do not have to wonder where Jesus is located. We know that He is in heaven reigning as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is praying for us now, leading our worship now, feeling our pain now, sharing our humanity now. Jesus is alive.
Sunday, May 6th: The Ascension — Luke 24:50-53
