Why Do You Look Up in the Sky?

This question was not asked by Jesus, but by two angels who watched Jesus' disciples witness his bodily ascension into heaven. This past Sunday, the Rev. Dr. Geordie Ziegler said that the ascension is one of his favorite Christian holidays and one of the most important for the Christian Church. Why? Because the disciples would then have to rely on the power of Jesus' Holy Spirit which lived inside of them and less on his physical presence. Yes, Jesus is still physically present with the Father in heaven, but it would be his Spirit which would empower us to do even more than we ever imaged to further God’s kingdom on earth.
