John 3:13
No one has ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. (NASB)

Ephesians 4:8-10
8 Therefore it says, “WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH, HE LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN.” 9 (Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 HE WHO DESCENDED IS HIMSELF ALSO HE WHO ASCENDED FAR ABOVE ALL THE HEAVENS, so that He might fill all things.) (NASB)

Tomorrow we celebrate the ASCENSION of our Lord Jesus Christ back to the Father and back to His dwelling place in heaven.

This however was not just a trip back home but a mission to send for us our Helper and Enabler, the Holy Spirit. It was also to prepare a rightful place for us together with Him in ETERNITY, our ultimate destination.

A thankful Wednesday to you, me and all who love Jesus.

Ascension Service Thursday 30 May, 6pm.
