A Joyful Departure

April 18, 2021 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Call of Jesus

Scripture: Luke 24:50–53, Acts 1:1–1:11

The disciples were joyful at Jesus departure because . . .  Luke 24:52-53

 

We live in Kingdom time.  Acts 1:3

  • Certainty of the kingdom.
  • Power of the kingdom. Acts 1:6-8
  • Expansion of the kingdom. Acts 1:8

 

Jesus is where we need him the most.  Luke 24:50-51, Acts 1:9-11

  • He is with our heavenly Father. Acts 1:9
  • He is our 1 John 2:1

 

  • He is now available anytime, anywhere. Acts 1:5, 8

 

Take Home Idea:  Christ’s ascension does not mean he has abandoned us, but that He is in control and He is with us.
