Discussion Questions
Feel free to use some or all of these questions in your cell group, Bible study, or with your family.  Some questions will need to be reworded or omitted for smaller children.

1) Have you ever ascended?  Not literally, I assume, but have you ever been raised up from one position to another?

2) The Ascension is a major event in the life of Christ, but is not often discussed.  Do you remember hearing a sermon or teaching about the ascension?  Do you remember anything that was said about it?

3)  According to the Ephesians passage, what happens to Christ as a result of the Ascension?

4)  What role does an ascended Christ play in the life of the Church?  What role can he now play in your life?

5)  The Acts passage says that Christ will return.  Do you look forward to that return?  Do you believe it will literally happen?  In your lifetime?  What difference would it make to you if you believed he would return in your lifetime?
