Today we celebrate the feast of the Ascension. This is the day Our Lord ascended to His Father, Body and Soul. This day should change how people think of eternity, and how they think of death. As Christians, we believe Christ rose from the dead after three days. We believe the account in the Book of Acts when we are told that He spent 40 days among His Apostles.
“The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God…” (Acts 1:1-3).
