THE SERMON TITLE this morning is God Gives Us His Final Word! This Sunday is Ascension Sunday! Thursday marked Jesus Christ’s ascension into heaven. While Jesus’ disciples watched, He ascended into heaven. They stood gazing skyward and two men dressed in white clothing said to them, “This Jesus . . . will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” Jesus’ first coming included His living, dying, rising, and ascending. Each was in accord with God’s Word. Likewise, His second or final coming is certain from His Word. As Jesus’ disciples we can faithfully live in the certain hope of Christ’s return.
