Significant Places: Mount of Olives
Mark 16:9

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.” Mark 16:9 NASB

For a period of forty days after His resurrection, Jesus appeared and spoke to the disciples (Acts 1:1-11). He then led them just east of Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives as far as Bethany (Luke 24:50-53). There on the eastern slope of the mount He ascended into heaven and took His place sitting on the throne at the right hand of God (Ephesians 1:20). There Jesus sits, enthroned with power and glory, awaiting His triumphant return. For in the same way He ascended in the clouds, He will return.

Lord Jesus, like the early disciples, I worship You as my Savior and Lord, enthroned in power and glory, and as the coming King to judge and rule the world.
