Midweek Message, May 9, 2018

This week we celebrate a very special day: The Ascension of Christ. It truly is a day to celebrate, for without the Ascension Jesus would not have been re-crowned as King of the World. Jesus is re-crowned! The prayer he prayed in his last night before to the cross, has become completely fulfilled because of this day;

“Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.” John 17:5 NLT

Jesus is KING! He has ascended and is enthroned. Great glory, splendor, majesty, and goodness emanate from Him – it is who He is. EVERYTHING is under His rule and authority. Grasp the impact. We can know that whatever is going on in our lives, Jesus has power over it. Difficulties, trials, temptations, heartbreaks, illnesses, persecutions…whatever name it goes by, Jesus’ name is greater. The Bible encourages us to bring these problems to our King;

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:16 NLT

So, hail the once and future King! For He has ascended on this day with victory and bids us come. Amen!
