Scripture: Acts 1:1-11. On the 40th day after the Resurrection, Jesus gathered with his disciples, commissioned them for service to the world, and ordered them to wait for the arrival of the Holy Spirit to guide and direct them. This morning, we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord as we hear the angels ask “why do you stand looking up toward heaven?” The Ascension is the event that prepares us for Pentecost and the unleashing of the Holy Spirit. We are called to stop looking and start living as disciples of the living Christ. Join Pastor Wayne as he explores this passage with us today.
