JOY FULFILLED

The ascension of Christ Jesus look place near Bethany, and his apostles were privileged to view this great event. As he had foretold, Christ Jesus returned to the Father; he so ascended in thought that he was no longer visible to the human senses of his disciples. Their beloved Master was no longer available to them in the flesh as teacher and companion. Yet. "they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,'" as Luke records (24:52).

The reason for their joy obviously could not be substantiated by mortal sense, for Jesus had ascended. The inspiring scene of the ascension must have added to their understanding of the Master's teaching's of man's immortal relationship to God. They had seen Jesus' great and final triumph over materiality and death and were aware that they would henceforth serve Christianity as witnesses as well as ministers and teachers. There was reason for joy.
