As we finish our Easter readings from the Acts of the Apostles, we see how both Peter and Paul commit their lives to the Lord. As a chapter of their lives comes to an end, they point us to the beginning of our final destination: eternal life!
Paul and Apollos both had important tasks to do at different times and different cities; our lives uniquely build up the Body of Christ when we offer our lives and call upon the Holy Spirit for guidance.
The feast of the Ascension teaches us key spiritual insights about ourselves and the Lord. May this day inspire us to embrace our faith – strengthened by Christ – as we face our own challenges and grow in God’s grace.
