Our Ascended Lord, Retired as Savior, Still Ruling from Heaven

Our Ascended Lord

The Sermon: Ephesians 1: 20-23 God worked His power in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

The Sermon: Acts 1: 9 – 11 Now when Jesus had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
