The Ascension

It saddens me to bring this story to an end.....Jesus' time on earth, I mean. I am so glad that God allowed me to spend time with His precious Son during the last 6 weeks of His life thru His Holy Word, the Bible!!! really doesn't end there.....
because as that young girl at the age of eleven who asked Jesus to come into my heart and live within me.....the story continues!!!!
Just like it does for each of you who have done the same thing!!!

I truly hope that you've enjoyed these posts as much as I've enjoyed digging into God's Word and letting Him fill up my heart and allowing me to just close my eyes and let it all sink in. Our youth pastor said Sunday evening that this had been his best Easter ever....I totally agree....mine, too!!!

Luke 24:44-53 (NLT)
Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ You are witnesses of all these things.

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”

Then Jesus led them to Bethany, and lifting his hands to heaven, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up to heaven. So they worshiped him and then returned to Jerusalem filled with great joy. And they spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God.

James 4:8 (KJV)
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.
Come close to God, and God will come close to you. (NLT)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
