"Ascension" by Judi. Used by Permission.
[For Christ’s universal authority and intercession as ascended Lord, see Matthew 28:18, Psalm 2:12, 1 John 2:1-2, and Hebrews 7:25. For the ascension of our humanity with him, see Hebrews 4:14-16; Ephesians 1:20-22; 2:6; and Colossians 3:1-4.]
Today's song is "Lion and the Lamb" by Austin Stone Worship. "In heaven Jesus hears our prayers and pleads our cause before the Father. Blessed are all who take refuge in him." For a perspective on this incredible truth, please listen to this timely video which Peggy shared, and be greatly encouraged.
"Lord, sick and sinful as we are, you hear our every prayer. We pray for all those fighting COVID-19 now, that you would hear their prayers for help and save them. Enable us to be ready to speak your words as we have opportunity, to the glory of your name."
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
