My spirit is fairly floating as I consider the reality of the risen Christ.
"God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets. Sing praises to God, sing praises. Sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise" (Psalm 47: 5-7).
But oh, my friends, the good news is that Jesus is not just in Heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father. The great good news is that He is also here, in our hearts and in our midst. Right here in this messy, fallen world. Redeeming. Reclaiming. Renewing.
He is here, and that is something to celebrate every day.
