In the Gospel of Luke, we see the life and ministry of Jesus on Earth. So what happens to His followers, when Jesus is no longer physically present? “Out of sight, out of mind” can be a dangerous reality. Christ’s absence from planet Earth can cause us to focus less on Him and more on ourselves.
In truth, Jesus’ ascension (Acts 1:9-11) has resulted in benefits that would not be ours if He was still living on Earth. His ascension marks a pivotal point not only in His story, but in History. His ascension keeps us waiting, working, and watching for His return.
