“No Sabbatical! Christ’s Work Continues in a New Way!”
Acts 1: 1 – 11
What is so important about our worship focus at Christmas and Easter? Our answers come quickly as we say that the birth and death and resurrection of God’s Son, Jesus, are critical and necessary junctures in God’s carrying out of His plan of salvation for the whole world. However, when the question “what is so important about the worship festival of the Ascension of our Lord?” is asked, answers come more hesitantly. May the Holy Spirit lead us to rejoice in Jesus’ ascension, which does not find our Lord fading into the background but in fact is transitioning His work in a new and exciting way that impacts our lives and the lives of all our brothers and sisters in His family, the church.
