Luke 24:50-53

Luk 24:50 Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and while lifting up his hands he blessed them.
Luk 24:51 While he blessed them, he parted from them and was lifted up into the sky.
Luk 24:52 And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
Luk 24:53 and they were continually blessing God in the temple .

a good exit

Jesus had promised to empower his apostles, so they had a purpose — a ministry to look forward to. He visibly prayed God’s blessings upon them. He was doing that as he ascended into the sky. No wonder these believers began a habit of continually blessing God. They worshiped Jesus with great joy. He had made a good exit.

There will come times when we will have to make an exit as well.

LORD, give us such a love for others that when we have to leave them, they can take it with confidence and joy, knowing that we will keep praying for them.
