Lk 24:50-51 When He had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, He lifted up His hands and blessed them. While He was blessing them, He left them and was taken up into heaven.
Our devotionals on the Easter season would not be complete without the Ascension of Christ. This was His last action on earth that shows His power to the disciples in a way that can be seen.
It’s all action in these two verses. He led them out, He lifted up His hand, He blessed them and hi final act he was taken up to heaven.
Are you, at all, in awe of the power of these verses? I am! Lk 24:53 they stayed continually and praised God. How much time passed? I know if it were me, I would have just stared up at the sky, eyes and mouth wide open, thinking about what just happened and how. I don’t know if anything could have moved me more, short of watching Him rise from death itself!
Take some time to think about how the disciples felt during this time. Do you think they were happy, sad, confused, amazed or all of the above mentioned? What are your reasons? What other things do you feel as you think of these verses? Please share your thoughts with us. We pray that you have seen the power of forgiveness and felt the love of God for what He has done.
As we end our Easter journey, we hope and pray that you have in some way had an “aha!” moment. Please continue to join us as we celebrate His Word together.
If you have any questions or would like us to tackle a devotional in an area that will be helpful to you, please let us know. This is a journey we want to take together. We are never alone. God is always with us in everything, good times and bad. We are only an email or message away to pray with you and/or for you.
Thank you for spending time with us.
Lord, we are delighted in Your Word and in Your love and caring for us. Help us to know that we are never alone, at any given second we can turn to you and your help will be there for us. In all things we thank you and praise Your Name. Amen
