THE BENEFITS OF THE ASCENSION

 

The Ascension of Christ was very beneficial for us. This is seen three

ways. Firstly, as our Leader, because He ascended in order to lead us; for

we had lost the way, but He has shown it to us. "For He shall go up that

shall open the way before them,17 and thus we may be made certain of

possessing the heavenly kingdom: "I go to prepare a place for you."18

Secondly, that He might draw our hearts to Himself: "For where thy treasure

is, there is thy heart so."19 Thirdly, to let us withdraw from worldly

things: "Therefore, if you be risen with Christ, seek the things that are

above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Mind the things

that are above, not the things that are upon the earth."20
