We often stop too short when telling the Gospel story to ourselves and to others. We often stop at the resurrection. But that's not where the Bible stops. It moves on to the ascension to Jesus being raised up to heaven, where he is seated, with his father above all rulers and powers and authorities. As the ascension is often overlooked, another important detail of the Gospel story is also overlooked. It is that Jesus ascended as a human being. Jesus is in heaven right now. Forever one with us, as a resurrected human being. God's identification with us is so complete, that in his love, he will forever be one with us. This does not mean that he has ceased to be fully God, for he forever is fully God. But it also recognizes that he is forever as, fully man. The miracle in the mystery of the Incarnation continues on God becoming one with us. God has found a way into our life into our darkness, and he has dragged us into his life and into his light, making us one with Him forever. Today we celebrate our union with God in Christ and the life we share with him forevermore. And we wait with expectant hope and with courage for his return, praying that he will make all things on Earth as they are in heaven. Amen.
