Jesus "ascends" into Heaven. What does this mean?
We do not believe that Jesus is on a cloud or floating
around the galaxy or went "up, up, and away!" For the Jewish
people, "heaven" and "earth" are two realms that are
connected, not separated. We don't escape
the earth or our earthly bodies; the Biblical worldview understands heaven
and earth as interacting in a very real way.
When we say that Jesus "ascends," we believe that
he is (1) alive and (2) with us still in a very real way. "Men of
Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky?" the angels
say to the apostles (Acts 1:11). Jesus is still with us now, so let's get
to work on bringing about the Kingdom of God in the here and now!

“Today our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven; let our
hearts ascend with him!"
