On the 40th day after Easter Sunday (yesterday), we celebrated our Lord's Ascension to the Father. It seems strange that we would celebrate Jesus' departure. How could this possibly be a good thing? The reason why Jesus' Ascension to the Father is a good thing is because of what results. First, he goes to prepare a place for us, a place in Heaven with the Father. Second, since he is going to prepare a place, he will surely return to take us there. Finally, once Jesus has ascended, the Holy Spirit will be sent to us, who, working through the Word and the Sacraments, brings us to faith and trust in Jesus and the forgiveness of our sins.
What the Father abundantly promises, Jesus the Son graciously provides in His death and resurrection for you, and then the Spirit joyfully brings all that to you in the Word and Gifts of Jesus. That's what the Apostles Creed confesses from the Holy Scriptures. Higher Things®We All Believe Vacation Bible School delivers all that to your children over a 5-day curriculum, which is specifically designed to highlight the knowledge and enthusiasm of your church's youth for God's Word.
