Jesus’ ascension into heaven proved that his sacrifice on the cross for us, really truly was perfect. All glory, authority, and power was returned to Jesus, who is now seated at His Father’s right hand. It is encouraging for us to know that Jesus physical body, our very flesh and blood, is in heaven. Jesus promises to return to bring us to where He is!
Three important things to consider: 1. Christ’s ascendancy. Jesus rules on the Father’s behalf. We observe something similar with Joseph, when he served under Pharaoh. For us, this requires us to acknowledge Jesus’ lordship over every aspect of creation, over us! 2. Christ’s Spiritual Omnipresence. Jesus is available to everyone, anywhere. He is attentive to our prayers, and he knows, he really knows what life is like, bad and good. 3 Christ’s heavenly ministry. Jesus, our reigning Lord, intercedes for us with the Father, he continually pleads on our behalf and serves us as our advocate. Jesus, together with God the Father, sends God the Holy Spirit so that we can continue to do the work the Father sent him to do. We will do even greater things than he did—because the Holy Spirit works in and through all of us!
