Lord, sometimes we forget that Christmas, Good Friday, Easter, and Ascension Day are all parts of one story, but the story doesn’t end there. Your birth, life, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension are important because they happened for our salvation. We believe you are coming back for us and for the whole church. We thank you for that hope! Amen.
