Jesus Has Not Left His Post

Today I have been thinking about the scripture that tells us that Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father. After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up to heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.  (Mark 16:19) In today’s world, that is chaotic, do you ever […]
