Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Because after His ascent Christ sat down at the right hand of God, being present everywhere and ruling powerfully, therefore He was able to be present with the apostles everywhere and to work with them as they preached the Gospel, by virtue and power of His sitting at the infinite right hand of God... Thus the fruit of the Lord's ascension is the establishment and preservation of the ministry.  -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On Christ, p. 246.
