In this new feature on the Preaching Collective, we’ll post video of sermons on particular texts and topics, along with a brief outline of each. In this first installment, Bob Kaylor offers a sermon on the Ascension, which was part of a series on the Nicene Creed.

Texts: Luke 24:36-53; Acts 1:1-11

Introduction: The Church of the Ascension and the neglected doctrine of the Ascension.

Why the Ascension is important. Three keys:

Word – It’s the extension of the biblical story (Luke 24:44-47)

Waiting – It enables the “democratic” movement of the Spirit, enabling the Church to carry out the mission of Jesus. The Spirit comes by waiting in prayer (Acts 1:4-5)

Witness – It is the commissioning of the Church for its ministry of witnessing to the world about the good news of Jesus (Acts 1:6-11)

Conclusion: The Church is the Church when it is empowered by the Spirit of the risen Christ.
