The Ascension of Our Lord

On the day of His ascension, Jesus, the Lord of lords and King of kings, ascended on high. Of this day, St. Paul says in today’s epistle, That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory…seated Christ at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:20-23).

This means that the name of the Lord is above every name, even yours and even mine. Jesus Christ is not just one Name among many. His Name is above all. Nor is He Savior to one, but not to another. He is the Savior of the entire world…
