Newsletter 13 & 20 May 2018
before this weekend, we celebrated the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ into
heaven. The Ascension of Christ goes with two great blessed assurances:
have another home after our earthly dwelling (cf Jn.14:1-6).
await our empowerment from above (cf Jn.16: 5-8.12.
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.
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).
Our Lord Jesus Christ who ascended into heaven, empower us with His Spirit and
make us His witnesses throughout the whole world.
