Ascension Day: Jesus Ascends to Heaven 

Ascension Day is the 40th day of Easter when we commemorate Jesus’ ascent into heaven.

While it’s common to picture Jesus’ resurrection at Easter as the final major event in his earthly ministry, his ascent is important too. Not just because it marks Jesus’ physical departure from Earth, but because during it Jesus issued a famous command that his followers try to pursue even today, thousands of years later: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

What is Verse Mapping? It’s using Bible study tools to research what you’ve just read in the Bible to learn more about what God is saying to you and how you can apply his Word to your life today. It’s comparing Bible translations, focusing on meaningful words, and delving into the deep meaning of each verse using starter verse maps and prompts.

Why You Need Good Fences in Your Life 

By Jennifer Dukes Lee

If I could lose my salvation, it would have happened the day a rogue pig showed up in our yard.

Act On the Solomon Promise 

By Henry Blackaby

[God says,] “If my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

It is the people of God who can truly shape a nation. Generally, politicians and governments cannot restore a nation once it is on a downward slide. While leaders and governments can influence a nation, there is no group of people who can determine the future of a nation like God’s…
