Not only did our Lord Jesus Christ live a perfect life, die on the cross as the atoning sacrifice for the sin of the world, and rise again from the dead, he also ascended to the throne of the universe to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords!
So what? What does that mean for you and me? It means a whole lot if you are slogging through life, trying to do your best to live for Jesus but feeling powerless, directionless, and aimless—thinking there has to be more to this Christian walk than attending church, reading the Bible, and praying while you wait for the Lord to return one day!
There is! The King is calling all who belong to him to “taste and see,” to join him in every facet of his kingship right now! Yes, right now, our Savior invites you and me to live and walk in the richness of his very own risen, victorious, dynamic, transforming, purposeful dominion.
In other words, the Ascended One wants you to experience the “ascended life.”
Therefore, welcome to this extended series of the Daily CHRIST TODAY Podcast:
