Luke 24:50-53

50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. 52 Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.” Luke 24:50-53

Ascension Day. A “novena” of prayer. Christians all over the world are praying for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done”Yes, Jesus was taken up to heaven. But he promised:“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” He promised:“I will be with you always.”And He has sent on us his Holy Spirit. Ascension Day by Malcolm Guite “We saw his light break through the cloud of gloryWhilst we were rooted still in time and placeAs earth became a part of Heaven’s storyAnd heaven opened to his human face. ...” - from “Sounding the Seasons”“For Christ ... entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. ... he has appeared once for all ... to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.”- from Hebrews‬ ‭9Let’s pray “Thy Kingdom Come” from Ascension to Pentecost 🙏🏻 be with you 😊Lesley & Graham
