Have you ever been hungry for something and not realize what it is until you taste it and know that this is what you wanted along.The study of the Ascension does that very thing.It says to the reader, come and taste and see that the Lord is good.There is not much written or taught from the pulpit on the Ascension and if you are like me, you will wonder this is what is missing.It is the piece that ties God's redemption all together.It is a easy short read but don't let that fool you, it carries a punch.In knowing the Lord, we can more clearly see the condition of our heart and the Ascension shows that in the humanity of Christ.We are shown that thru Moses when he ascended up to the mountain to meet with God.One of the many fine points that show Jesus to our fallen world.We are very much like Israel, however, we have only one Jesus that sits at the right hand of God.

It is Jesus' humanity that allows us to be in the presence of God.The ascension is the story of the enthronement of Jesus as king of this world.The ascension says it is done; whom do we follow.Whom do we allow to rule our hearts, mind and body.

The good news of the Ascension is that when Jesus came as a man to this earth, he came not to judge but was judged for our sins.In the book of Daniel, we discover the Ascension and Jesus' rule when he comes back.Do not be dismayed, as this world goes against the will of God and his design for mankind, the ascension tells us that all will be made right.

As the story and example of the Tower of Babel, the ascension reminds us that we cannot bring perfection to this world, the ascension puts us in our place.It tells us that Jesus reigns; not us.And it is Jesus who will bring God's new world at his return.Our role is not to create God's kingdom, but to model the reality of heaven and proclaim his kingship even if it means suffering.The king rules as people take up their cross and follow him in the hope of resurrection glory.The kingdom does not depend on us, but we do get the privilege to model the heavenly rule of Jesus as we take the Gospel to others in word and deed.

The study of the ascension of Christ demonstrates the Glory of God and his love for his people.Taste and see that the Lord is good. Thank you Cross Focused Media for the opportunity to read such Christ, Cross Centered books.
