Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:9-11, Holy Bible, New King James)
When Jesus ascended to heaven, He did not leave us without hope for the future. Two angels confirmed that Jesus will have an encore. He has gone away for a time, but He will return.
Prayer: Thank You Jesus for this promise of Your return for a brighter future. Amen.
