Question 49

Of what advantage to us is Christ's ascension into heaven?

First, that he is our advocate in the presence of his Father in heaven;150150    1 John 2:1; Rom. 8:34. secondly, that we have our flesh in heaven as a sure pledge that he, as the head, will also take up to himself, us, his members;151151    John 14:2; John 17:24; John 20:17 ; Eph. 2:6. thirdly, that he sends us his Spirit as an earnest,152152    John 14:16, 7; Acts 2:1–4, 33; 2 Cor. 1:22; 2 Cor. 5:5. by whose power we “seek the things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God, and not things on earth.”153153    Col. 3:1; Philip. 3:14.
