Happy Ascension Day!
Acts 1 tells us that for a period of about forty days after His resurrection Christ appeared to His disciples, teaching them and occasionally eating with them. On one such day, He led them out to the Mount of Olives and ascended into heaven as they
gawked looked on.
So what is He doing as He sits at the Father’s right hand (Hebrews 10:12)?
- Hebrews 1:3 – presiding over the universe
- Colossians 1:18 – ruling over His church
- Hebrews 4:15 – entering into our struggles and empathising with our weaknesses
- Romans 8:34, Hebrews 9:24 – interceding for us
