Read Daniel 7:9-10 and 13-14

9 While I was looking, thrones were put in place. One who had been living for ever sat down on one of the thrones. His clothes were white as snow, and his hair was like pure wool. His throne, mounted on fiery wheels, was blazing with fire, 10and a stream of fire was pouring out from it. There were many thousands of people there to serve him, and millions of people stood before him. The court began its session, and the books were opened.

13 During this vision in the night, I saw what looked like a human being. He was approaching me, surrounded by clouds, and he went to the one who had been living for ever and was presented to him. 14He was given authority, honour, and royal power, so that the people of all nations, races, and languages would serve him. His authority would last for ever, and his kingdom would never end.

Think

This passage gives us the heavenly perspective of what happens on Ascension day, Jesus taking his place in the court of heaven.  That he takes his place at a judgment seat is a reminder that Jesus has the last word over all the injustice of the world.

Pray

Help me to remember that you Jesus are the Lord who will have the final word over my life.  Help me to love what you love and live as you would have me live.
