Isn’t it awesome to think that today in heaven Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.  Although Jesus left earth and returned to his Father in heaven, he did not leave us alone. He left the Holy Spirit to be with us and to help us fulfill the Great Commission. Again, our students are learning just how loving our heavenly Father is to us. As the KIDS Rock ½ sheet reminded us “One day, Jesus will return to make all things new and to rule as Lord over all. As we wait for His return, we can do the work He has given us, and the Holy Spirit will give us power.”
