Acts 1:1-11: (https://www NULL.biblegateway NULL.com/passage/?search=Acts+1%3A1-11&version=NIV) Jesus promises the Holy Spirit to his disciples. Then he is taken up into heaven, with the assurance of the angels that he will return.
Today we are going to talk about Jesus’ goodbye to His disciples – we know it as the Ascension.
The most important events in Jesus’ life certainly include His birth, baptism, temptation, transfiguration, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Like many of the other important events in Jesus’ life, the ascension is also important for a number of reasons. In this sermon we look at the reasons why the ascension was an absolute necessity.
