The Ascension of the Lord:

Still Going, Still Baptizing, Still Saving

Jesus is lifted up to the right hand of God. Jesus, however, is both in heaven and in our midst. Jesus is surely ascended, but absolutely still with us too! So, what does that mean for us? Baptism makes a big difference in earthly life. It claims us for Christ and claims us for heaven. Because we now look like Him, we are charged to act like Him.

• Where or to whom am I being sent this week? Will I go?

• How will I radiate baptismal purity in word and deed?

• What mercy work will fill my words and deeds?
