This past weekend at Eastbrook, we continued our preaching series entitled “Living the Creed: Connecting Life and Faith in the Apostles’ Creed.” This series walks through the Apostles Creed as a basic summary of our faith but also as a way to live our faith out with God in the world. Each weekend of this series will explore the biblical and theological roots of the Apostles Creed, while also providing specific spiritual practices and approaches to living out what we know as we ‘proclaim and embody’ the Creed in our daily lives.
This weekend Will Branch preached on one of the latter statements the second article of the creed: “He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.”
After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Mark 16:19
He ascended to heaven . . .
- That’s where He belongs
- That’s when the Spirit comes
- That’s how God has done it
He is seated at the right hand of God . . .
- Because he deserves the highest honor
- Because he has all authority
- Because he lives to make intercession
- Because his job was done
Why it matters:
- It paves our way
- It propels our witness
- It empowers our worship
