Going Home - Jesus' Assuring Ascension (Luke 24:44-53)
The Ascension of Our Lord, June 2, 2019
It was Jesus Christ who ascended into heaven because his work was done.:
Because the disciples witnessed Jesus ascending to heaven, they were assured that everything concerning the Promised Savior was fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
All those Old Testament prophesies they learned growing up were completed before their very eyes.
He continues to bless all his repentant children with the forgiveness of all their sins.
All the person needs to do is confess and trust to receive this blessing.
It doesn’t depend on us—-we have a Savior; we have his forgiveness.
That’s assured to us by Jesus’ ascension. Amen.
Pastor Tim Patoka
