It was not long after he said this that he was taken up into the sky while they were watching, and he disappeared into a cloud. — Acts 1:9 (NLT)
After Jesus came back to life, He spent the next forty days telling people about the Kingdom of God. Then while He was speaking to them and blessing them, He rose into the sky. He had finished the work God called Him to do. In His resurrected body, He moved from this physical world into the spiritual world. His disciples saw Him rise into the clouds, and it changed their lives completely. It should change our lives today. How do you think you would have felt if you’d been there? How do you think knowing Jesus is alive will change your life? He has promised to come back for all who believe in Him. When He comes back, He will take His followers to a wonderful, beautiful place that He is building. Have you given your life to the God who loves you and has plans for you? Have you given your heart to the God who has all power and authority and wants to make your life better? He is a wonderful Savior, and He gives us the right to choose His way. He is not a good way, or even a great way to Heaven –
He is the ONLY way.
