Q: How does Christ’s Ascension to heaven benefit us?A: First, he is our Advocate in heaven in the presence of His Father.Second, we have our own flesh in heaven as a sure pledge that Christ our Head will also take us, his members, up to himself.Third, he sends his Spirit to us on earth as a corresponding pledge.
By the Spirit’s power we seek not earthly things but the things above, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand.
