This week we celebrated Ascension Day.
On the surface it might look like Jesus was leaving us, heading home to Heaven to be with his Father. In reality, Jesus had accomplished what He had been sent to Earth to do, he was going ahead of us to prepare a place for us in Heaven.
Check out this short video on the life of Jesus and the message that Jesus left us with before ascending into Heaven.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
