In His triumphant ascension, Christ demonstrated His victory over all powers of evil. Though His reign has yet to be realized on earth, when He ascended, Christ gave each of His followers unique and purposeful gifts enabling us to serve God. While these gifts are not equal in size or significance, they are a result of God’s grace and should not be a cause for pride or comparison. Alistair Begg points out that all Christians are called to serve because Christ has equipped us to do so, and we have no excuse for failing to use the gifts He has given.
