Ascension Day

We are still following a liturgical calendar in the No Idle Bread household. Doing so has helped us to keep track of Biblical time in the sense that, yes, the Bible is real, and yes, these things did unfold, for real, in history, in real life. Spiritually, it helps to keep us mindful of the way God orchestrated things from the Old Testament to the New Covenant, in the lives of the early Christians, and in our own lives as well.

Today, we are remembering the Ascension of our Lord, Jesus Christ, who ascended into heaven and is now sitting at the right hand of the Father. (Acts 1:9-11, Ephesians 1:20, Hebrews 8:1)

This morning we read Acts 1:1-11 and we talked about what an impact that must have made on the disciples. We talked about Jesus' promise to never leave us and how He promised to send the Holy Spirit.

We have been counting the days between the Resurrection and the Day of Pentecost by following along with the happenings, according to Scripture, between those two major events. Ascension day is a pretty big deal, too, I would say. Can you even imagine?!

So, as we gazed out of the window this morning, I told the kids we could be called Cloud Watchers, because the best part is, one day Jesus will return in the same way He ascended--in the clouds.

And, what a glorious day that will be!
