And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. While He was blessing them, He parted from them and was carried up into heaven. And they, after worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising God.
Christ's redemptive work on earth was finished and now He sits at the right hand of God the Father. . . "Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them" (Hebrews 7:25). The disciples worshiped Christ at His ascension "and were continually in the temple praising God." Knowing everything we do from scripture about our Lord and the salvation we have through Him, should inspire us to continually praise Him, as well.
