'At God's Right Hand'
The Ascension of the Lord
So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God.
The apostles did more than preach about Jesus, they shared the personal stories of their own development of a love relationship with Christ... Love became a golden thread that bound them to their listeners and captivated their hearts. That is why they became such astonishing convert makers. They used the most irresistible force ever invented to change people's minds--by changing people's hearts first. This is why Easter time always seems as close to paradise as we get to on earth. This puts the fire and enthusiasm into evangelization. When Jesus felt absolutely certain the apostles were ready to go on their own, he ascended to heaven and sat down at God's right hand.
