The ascension was a powerful symbol of the ultimate victory of Jesus and a guarantee of the effectiveness of His work. This is very good news for Jesus’ followers, both then and now. It means we can trust that He is King over all the universe and that His promise to prepare a place for us is ironclad. Alistair Begg exhorts us to rejoice in that reality, rest in the security of our salvation, and be energized for the good works we have been called to do.
51While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven. 52And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53and were continually in the temple blessing God.
