Newsletter 13 & 20 May 2018
<span ">Just before this weekend, we celebrated the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ into heaven. The Ascension of Christ goes with two great blessed assurances:
1.<span "> <span ">We have another home after our earthly dwelling (cf Jn.14:1-6).
2.<span "> <span ">We await our empowerment from above (cf Jn.16: 5-8.12.
<span ">These are hopes we have in Christ who suffered, died and resurrected to break the yokes of sin and death. We cannot have it any better than this. His ascension refreshes these great hopes we nurture in His call.
<span ">With the Spirit of God empowering us and we co-operating with it; we will go out and preach the Gospel to the people we meet with our lives. God will surely confirm our mission with signs as he did to Elisha who with the double spirit of Elijah his master, performed so many great works. (cf 2Kings 2:9-15).
<span ">May Our Lord Jesus Christ who ascended into heaven, empower us with His Spirit and make us His witnesses throughout the whole world.
