“God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name”… (Phil.2:9).
40 days after His resurrection, Jesus was exalted to the right hand of the Ancient of Days.
In this way, He was given total authority over all the nations and kings of this world.
As the exalted Lord, He has universal power and dominion over heaven and earth.
And all of history is moving toward the day when His enemies become a footstool for His feet…
And every knee bows and every tongue confesses that He truly is Lord.
The truth of Christ’s ascension is one we’d do well to meditate on.
Especially in our anxious times.
The fact that our Lord has been exalted has many practical applications.
Not the least of which is this:
He’s got the whole world in His hands…
And because He does, there’s no reason to fear and great reason to serve Him with hope.
Blessings on your Ascension Day!
