ASCENSION OF THE LORD
Acts 1:1-11; Psalm 47; Ephesians 1:17-23; Matthew 28:16-20
Room for everyone
If the eleven disciples thought that their coming together with Jesus on the mountain was a reunion of sorts, they were soon disabused. The command Jesus gives them is huge – “make disciples of all nations”. Clearly, they have work to do - and so do we. Our faith can never be about ‘me and Jesus’. We cannot take Jesus into our hearts and leave everyone else to fend for themselves. Every day, in different ways, by word and by example, we have the opportunity to “make disciples”, and we can have the confidence to take up that challenge because we know that we are not on our own.
