Homily for the Ascension of Our Lord

"Where's Jesus?" That was the title and theme of last evening's Festal Divine Service on the Ascension of Our Lord. Contrary to appearances when He is taken up into heaven, our risen Lord Jesus is not absent. He's merely hidden from sight - hidden from the sight of His disciples by the cloud and certainly even now hidden from our physical sight. However, our Lord of glory, our Savior from sin, our Victor over death is still with us. Remember, "Immanuel" from Christmas? Remember Matthew 28:20, spoken by our resurrected Lord?

So, "Where's Jesus?" Right where He has promised to be: with His Church in His Gospel proclaimed and His Sacraments delivered. Click here to download the audio file and listen to the homily.
