SERMON: Acts 1:9-11 “Neglected, Yet Necessary”

“Why is the Ascension of Jesus absolutely necessary to our faith?”

1. Jesus Fulfills God’s Plan
2. Jesus Provides Heavenly Intercession
3. Jesus Worshiped as the Ascended Lord of All
4. Jesus’ Return is Imminent

“Jesus’ ascension assures us of His presence with us today and our presence with Him in eternity’s tomorrow."
APPLICATION QUESTIONS:
1. What is the importance of the event of the Ascension and what do these texts validate about God and the ongoing work of Jesus Christ? How would our lives be different if Jesus was not currently reigning in heaven but was only another “martyr” who died for their faith?
2. What is the mission field God is calling you to? Why are we so prone to desire to stand around and “look into the sky” rather than getting to work?
3. Review the following selected texts that speak to Christ’s Ascension and identify significant truths for our faith that they illustrate: Ephesians 1:20-23, 4:10; Philippians 2:6-11; 1 Peter 3:22.
4. Review the following texts that reference His imminent return in power and glory. Again, identify the encouragement, warning, and exhortation that they provide to all mankind: Daniel 12:2-3; Amos 4:12; Matthew 25:31-46; Mark 13:33-36; John 5:28-29; Acts 1:7; Revelation 22:12-17.
