While Jesus blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven

1Cor 15:1-4: I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you... that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according Scriptures.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the empty tomb and Jesus' victory over the grave. Just as Jesus' death pardoned our sin, his resurrection assures our future. Thank you for grace and glory. May our life be lived each day by the power of the resurrection. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 28:16-20)
Jesus' final words to his apostles spot to his saving mission and to their assignment to be witnesses of his saving death and his magnificent resurrection and to proclaim the good news of salvation to the entire world. Jesus' leaving and ascension was both an conclusion and a beginning for his disciples. While it was the last part of Jesus' physical presence with his beloved disciples, it noticeable the beginning of Jesus' presence with them in an innovative way. Jesus assured that he would be with them always to the end of time. Now as the glorified and risen Lord and redeemer, raised to the right hand of the Father in heaven, Jesus guaranteed to send them the Holy Spirit who would anoint them with authority on the Feast of Pentecost, immediately as Jesus was anointed for his ministry at the River Jordan. When the Lord Jesus dead physically from the apostles, they were not left in grief or sorrow. In its place, they were filled with joy and with immense expectation for the coming of the Holy Spirit.
