ascended and exalted

Ascension of Christ / Giacomo Cavedone / Los Angeles County Museum of Art 

Almighty God, we praise you
    for the exaltation of your Son
    our Savior Jesus Christ
    to your right hand.
Through his Incarnation,
    earthly ministry,
    crucifixion and
 he has conquered sin, evil and death
    and by his glorious ascension
    he is triumphantly reigning
    over all of creation.
Grant us the ability and desire to follow our Sovereign King
    that one day we may be exalted to where he is:
    living and reigning with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.

Porter C. Taylor, American Anglican Priest


Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith:

Christ was revealed in a human body
    and vindicated by the Spirit.
He was seen by angels
    and announced to the nations.
He was believed in throughout the world
    and taken to heaven in glory.
