The Apostles Creed states that Jesus “ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.”
So when he ascended did he leave his followers powerless and alone?
Not at all.
Because we believe that after the ascension, Jesus sent his Holy Spirit “down to earth” to continue his ministry in and through the church.
And what did Jesus’ ministry include while he walked the earth?
Preaching, teaching, feeding, healing.
So those are the divine ministries that continue today in the power and spirit of Jesus himself. Especially that last one. Healing.
It’s where we’re headed this coming Sunday. In a way we’ve never quite done it before.
Monday on Sunday.
8:30. 10. 11:30.
And remember to move your clocks ahead one hour.
