On the Lord's Ascension
The Ascension Completes Our Faith in Him, Who Was God As Well as Man.
The Ascension Renders Our Faith More Excellent and Stronger.
The Marvellous Effects of This Faith on All.
His Ascension Refines Our Faith : the Ministering of Angels to Hint Shows the Extent of His Authority.
“Touch Me not, for I have not yet ascended to My Father:”
“Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing into heaven? This Jesus Who was taken up from you into heaven shall so come as ye saw Him going into heaven.”
We Must Despise Earthly Things and Rise to Things Above, Especially by Active Works of Mercy and Love.
“dearly-beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.”
