Topic: Sacraments Scripture: Matthew 28:18–20

Prior to His bodily ascension into heaven, Jesus promises His enduring presence to His church. While Jesus’ promise is comforting, it also creates an immediate problem. Since Jesus, in sight of His disciples, ascended bodily into heaven (Acts 1:9), how can He be with His church now on earth? By ascending into heaven, did Jesus abandon us and thereby break His promise to be with His church to the end of the age? Did He leave us as orphans? So, then the question we will explore in this message is: How is Christ present with His church?
