Ascension day, the day we remember that Jesus ascended into heaven. The day we reflect that the next time we see him will be when he comes back to earth, having prepared our home for us his Father’s House. That’s so cool and exciting 😊
John 14:2 – In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you
Mark 16:19 – So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God
Jesus is coming again, does that utterly amaze you? Does it faze you, do you think it’s highly unlikely that a man from two thousand years ago will descend from the clouds like a superhero, yes I know how crazy that sounds to a non-believer but when you’ve been on the receiving end of his love, his power, his healing and received his showers of blessing on your life, when you appreciate the sacrifice he made when he died on the cross to save you from your sins, when you live with his Spirit within, changing your life and helping you live a life that means something, a life that acknowledges Jesus as King, a life which doesn’t faze you anymore cos Jesus came knocking on your door and said give me all your worries, all your cares and burdens and I will take them on myself, when he helped you overcome addiction, gave your life more traction, when he took your pain and made it better, surrounded you with friends, lends his ear whenever you need it, day or night he never denies you his time, when you see how sublime his love is for you, it won’t amaze you, it’s what you have come to expect of a King who walks on water, turns water to wine, heals the sick and brings the dead to life, this King is real, he is coming again, turn from your sin and you too can claim the place in his house he’s prepared for you, don’t be a fool, he’s calling to you.
