Ascension - What Bo Giertz said

"Several times He disappeared from their sight, but this time at Bethany He disappeared in such a way that they knew they had seen Him for the last time...This doesn't necessarily mean that God's kingdom is somewhere above us in space, but that when God created the heavens above us in space, but that when God created the heavens above us, He gave us a reminder of His kingdom's immenseness and majesty, of the light and clarity there... The Lord's ascension is a milestone in world history. Christ sits at the Father's side and resumes full divine qualities. He is now the omnipresent Savior, who can intervene anywhere with His saving presence." - Bo Giertz' Devotion for Ascension Day from To Live with Christ
