In the movie, “Forrest Gump,” Lieutenant Dan asked Forrest Gump if he had found Jesus yet. Forrest replied, “I didn’t know that I was supposed to be looking for him.” Is Jesus lost? Where is Jesus? Some would say he is in their hearts. But where is he physically and what is he doing? We are told he went to heaven on a cloud. What was that all about?
Next Thursday is the day of Ascension. That means Easter Sunday was forty days ago and Pentecost Sunday will be ten days ahead. It was very interesting to me as I began preparing for today’s lesson how none of my study helps viewed Ascension day as do I. We know about Christmas and Easter, but don’t seem to know much about Ascension. To most, Ascension day is a church observance day when Jesus had a hot air balloon experience and left us thousands of years ago. He somehow was given a special ride to heaven. I don’t want us to think of the ascension with that shallow of an understanding. So, what is the ascension about? (sermon notes and audio)
