Sermon: The Ascension of Our Lord (Epistle)

Preached on Thursday 1 May AD 2008

Sermon Theme: Christ, Our Head

Summary: The body — the Christian Church — has no guidance, direction, or life without its Head, Jesus Christ. He leads, orders, and animates His body that it may follow in His paths and do His will on earth and in eternity.

Jesus Standing on the CloudsText: For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
Ephesians 1:15-23
