We all love Christmas and Easter. Our churches all make it a point to celebrate these great events in the time of our Savior on Earth as being incredibly significant. The work of Christ of salvation, fulfilled prophecy and resurrection was complete. This passage in Luke reminds us how important it is to preach on the ascension and to give it the place that it deserves in Christ's work on Earth and His continued work that He does. Luke tells us that there were lives that changed from doubters to being the first witnesses to go forth and tell the world of Christ's salvation. It also tells us what a blessing it is to us now, as Christ sent a Comforter in the Holy Spirit. He has also gone to prepare a place for His bride in glory for all of eternity.
