Life after Easter

The two major celebrations of the church year are undoubtedly Christmas and Easter. After Easter though, we sometimes find ourselves asking, “Jesus rose from the dead. That’s exciting. Now what?” The answer to that question is the ascension of Jesus which took place 40 days after the resurrection.

Jesus’ ascension is one of the events in God’s working in this world which is often unappreciated. Like the first disciples who saw him slowly fade into the distance we think, “That’s not fair. He’s abandoned us!” But far from leaving us on our own, Jesus returned to heaven fully restored of all his power and glory as true God. Though invisible, he is intimately involved in the workings of the world on a daily basis, bringing human history to its ultimate conclusion, an event referred to as Judgment Day.

What Jesus said about Judgment Day and the role of Christian people in working with him in bringing it to pass answer huge questions critical to our lives such as, “Where is this world heading?” and “What is my role in the grand scheme of things?” Knowing how history is going to end and how we as individuals can practically be a part of that eternity changing moment of history is vital…right now and when it happens.

Join us for one of our services this weekend. Let’s talk about life after Easter!
