He will return // 27-05-22

“As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!”” Acts 1:10-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yesterday was Ascension day in the church calendar, forty days after Easter when Jesus ascended into heaven, now sat at the right hand of the Father, His salvation work complete. It happened 10 days before Pentecost when He sent the Holy Spirit to empower us to be His Church, His body here on the earth with the mandate to go with His message of Good News, launching the age we are still in, which will end when Jesus returns! But He’s not back yet, so there is still work for us to do, so many people who still need to make that turn back to God; today is still the day of Salvation, of God’s favour, so let’s not abandon our posts as the ones sent to go to this generation, let’s pray over these next ten days, ‘Lord, fill us afresh with Your Holy Spirit, fire us up for the mission, and may we live as those who have been sent! Amen’ 🙌🏼😊
