Think back to the last time you were in an airport...(I know it might have been a while thanks to Covid). As you entered the terminal you were greeted with giant screens letting you know the arrival and departure of flights throughout the day. These boards helped guide us to where we need to be.

Arrival and Departures are also important for us to think about when it comes to Jesus.

We spend a lot of time around Christmas thinking about Jesus' arrival on earth.  His arrival on earth ushered in our opportunity to have our sin forgiven and our relationship with God the Father restored.  We should be eternally grateful for his arrival, but...

But often we don't spend time on how important his departure was to our life and faith as well.  You can read about his departure in Luke 24 and Acts 1.  As humble as his arrival was his departure gives followers of Jesus hope and a calling moving forward. 

Give a listen to our worship minister Nick Ehlts will be sharing the importance of the Ascension and why it should matter to us today.
