Chambers: the open doors to heaven

Wednesday, March 17, 2010
    Feast of Patrick, Bishop of Armagh, Missionary, Patron of Ireland, c.460
    After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them.
    “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
    —Acts 1:9-11 (NIV)
    At his Ascension our Lord entered heaven, and he keeps the door open for humanity to enter.
    ... Oswald Chambers (1874-1917), My Utmost for His Highest, Leicester: F.A. Thorpe, 1927, p. 138 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we wait to be reunited with You in the body.
