The Ascension of the Lord celebrates God's promises to us
by Renae Bauer
Inevitably, there are disappointments in life. Maybe it’s a broken promise or less-than-truthful words from someone we respect or love. Perhaps we can look at these human failings and remember we are just that – human.
These occasional disappointments stand in stark contrast to God’s promises, which are the highlight of Ascension Sunday. God’s Kingdom is promised. The help of the Holy Spirit is promised. Jesus’ enduring presence is promised. Redemption is promised. Hope is promised.
As you look at this image, which promise are you reminded of? As Easter people, we have many promises to be joyful about.
