Enlightened Eyes of the Heart

May 17 is Ascension of the Lord Sunday in our lectionary.  We recall Jesus’ time with his disciples after his resurrection, his promise to them of a Comforter, the Holy Spirit, and his ascension into heaven.  Acts 1:1-11.  Pastor Karen Witt’s May 17 sermon weaves the Acts passage with a heartfelt prayer of the apostle Paul:  “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.  I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”  Ephesians 1:17-20.  You can hear Karen’s lovely, hopeful sermon here.
