Apostle's Creed: Ascended into heaven, seated at right hand

"He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father."

When you are recovering from an addiction or a sin, what a blessing it is to know that Jesus's body lives in heaven and always sits by the Father pleading for me and for anyone else who believes in him.  Although we were once eaten away by our sins and separated from God, he sent Jesus to pay the penalty for them.

We rejoice in him being with the Father because God always delights in his Son.  Because of that, he will save all that Jesus died for.

And in this crazy election where no godly candidate is winning and all the ones who were godly are now caving and going for the ungodly men and women, it is wonderful to know that Jesus is still in office in heaven ruling the world.  The world that we see is all His and nobody comes into power without him allowing it.  And he will bring it all under his rule both now and for all time.

Right now, while we wait we must think of that and continue to do his will.
