Everyone knows Christmas and Easter are integral to the Christian faith. But what about The Ascension? Is it integral as well? And if so, why is it pretty much ignored? Maybe because it always falls on a Thursday...forty days after the Resurrection, and ten days before Pentecost. Maybe we just don’t understand its significance. Yesterday was The Feast of the Ascension. Did you know?
But have you ever wondered why Jesus said in John 16:7 that it was better for us that he go away?
It’s because The Ascension has profound implications for the Church as a whole, for you, and for Monday mornings.
It’s too good to be ignored.
