The Ascension Blessing

por College Church of the Nazarene University Avenue

In the message, Dr. Charles Perabeau reminded us of the significance of the ascension. It wasn’t just that Jesus was lifted up into the sky and disappeared into the heavenly realm to sit at the right hand of God the Father that makes it important but it is also significant because of what Jesus was doing when he was ascending. Jesus had his hands up blessing the disciples while he was being taken up to heaven. In this blessing, Jesus was lifting up and giving favor to those who had been following him for the last three years. So, when Jesus was making his way to take his rightful seat at the right hand of the Father, he did not choose to glorify himself but he took that time to bless his disciples. Jesus wanted to make sure his disciples knew that they were blessed and so to give them the confidence to live in the way he had shown them.

  1. How have you understood the ascension of Jesus? How important do you think it has been?
  2. How do you think it would have been like to be one of those disciples on the side of that mountain?
  3. This blessing from Jesus is significant and at times seems unbelievable that we would be blessed in the ways Jesus blesses us. Why do you think we might be inclined to not live as if we believe in this blessing?
  4. How do you think our daily life and interactions would change if we lived into the blessings of Jesus?
  5. How can you use the blessings that Jesus gives us to witness to those around us?

PALM SUNDAY/PASSION SUNDAY
 
WELCOME
(Mark Quanstrom)
 
HOSANNA
(Marvin Jones)
 
CALL TO WORSHIP: MATTHEW 21:1-11
(Donna Lovett)
 
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

"Say to the Daughter of Zion,
'See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed shouted,

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"
"Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!"
Hosanna in the highest!"

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"
The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."
 
INVOCATION
(Russ Lovett)
 
PSALM 118
(Joel Heald and Family)
 
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
Let Israel say: "His love endures forever."
Let the house of Aaron say: “His love endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say: “His love endures forever.”
Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
I will give you thanks, for You answered me; You have become my salvation.
The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;
the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
The Lord is God, and He has made His light shine upon us.
You are my God, and I will give You thanks; You are my God, and I will exalt You.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
 
SONG: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS
(Brian Allen)
 
EPISTLE READING: PHILIPPIANS 2:5-11
(Bill, Kirstyn Bahr and Family)
 
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient to death —
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

TRANSFORMATION QUESTIONS FOR THE FAMILY
1) What is your favorite memory of Palm Sunday or Easter? Why is it so special to you?
  • What is your favorite thing to celebrate?
  • In what ways do you think this week (Holy Week) will feel different for you?

  • Would you have chosen to save us this way?
  • Would you be scared?
3) Philippians tell us that “our attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus” and that we should be humble servants. When is this hardest for you? Easiest?
  • Do you think being a humble servant was easy or difficult for Jesus? Give an example.
  • How can we become more like Jesus, a humble servant?
