Jesus' Ascension, What Does It Mean For Us Today? Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Jesus' Ascension, What Does It Mean For Us Today?

Rating: 5.0


Is Jesus' ascension significant for our faith
and understanding of God?
Or is it just a short epilogue to his earthly ministry?

Christians believe that the ascension does hold value
and meaning for us today.

Here are two articles that unpack
the importance of the ascension,
and Jesus' post-resurrection ministry:
Please read, thank you so much.
Sunday night, I was teaching from The Gospel Project in our Life Group. I found this section on why Jesus' ascension matters to be really helpful.

For Luke,
the ascension was a significant moment
in the disciples' personal transformation
and the advance of the gospel through the church.

He emphasized the importance of the ascension
by ending his Gospel with this event and
beginning his second volume, Acts, with it.

The ascension had a profound impact on the disciples.
Up to the moment that Jesus ascended to heaven,
the disciples seemed to be puzzled,
trying to figure it all out.

But after the ascension, they worshiped Him.
They traveled back to Jerusalem with great joy.
They maintained a regular presence
in the temple—worshiping God.

At first, the disciples' reaction to Jesus' ascension
may catch us off guard.
Jesus had just "left them."
And yet they were happy—filled with joy.

Why this reaction?
After all, when Jesus told them
at the end of John 13 that He would soon leave them,
they were deeply disturbed.

Thus, He encouraged them by teaching them
about the ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 14-17) .

He kept them from the brink of utter despair by saying,
"You are not losing Me, but I am going to be with you
in a different way through My Spirit."
