[VIDEO] Ascension of the Lord is Not Abandonment but Commission | Rev. Aaron Eime (Ascension Sunday 2024)

The Ascension of our Lord is not an act of abandonment, but of commission. In John’s Gospel, we are told that only after Christ’s Ascension can we receive His promised Holy Spirit, Who empowers us to live out the calling he gave us. “Just as the Father sent me,” Jesus says, “so I am sending you.” May we ever seek to find Him present among us in Spirit, until the day we will see Him face to face.
