Jesus’ ascension into heaven is more than a “super human” story. It is a final proclamation of God’s power and Christ’s authority. While we often respond with awe, the disciples respond with joy and prayer. Jesus is king. God’s kingdom is at hand. The power to change the world is right around the corner. However, we must wait. As we wait, we are not passive. Being God’s servants and Christ’s friends, we step out in faith to enact God’s kingdom vision in the world.
