What is Jesus doing right now? I heard that He went to heaven after He rose from the dead, but why didn't He just stay here on earth?


Jesus Christ came down from heaven for one reason: to do God’s will by giving His life as the final sacrifice for our sins. Once that was accomplished, His main work was done, and 40 days after His resurrection He ascended into heaven. The Bible says, “He was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God” (Mark 16:19).

What is Jesus doing now? The answer should thrill us, because right now — at this very moment — He is praying for us. He knows all about our needs and heartaches; He also knows our temptations and doubts — and He is praying for us. No matter what we face, He continues to pray for us. The Bible says that He “is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34).

Does this mean Christ abandoned this world, once He left it for heaven? No! Instead He left us here in His place, to carry on His work in the power of His Spirit. It may be a quiet act of kindness; for some it even may mean going to a far corner of the earth to tell others about Jesus. Jesus said, “Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12).

What does Jesus Christ mean to you? Have you committed your life to Him? Make sure of your salvation by giving your life to Him. Then thank Him for praying for you — and respond by living for Him every day.

    And yes, praying to or talking with His Father in heaven.

  2. Charlie says:

    No mater what happens, Jesus is praying for us. We may die at any moment, even our dearest loved ones, with undiminished plans and goals. When we die, and all will, the lights will go back on and we will be saved by His gift.

  3. James Gilchrist says:

    Surely, God left the Heavens and came down becoming a man to die for our sins. No other love in the world would be as true as our Lord’s.

    I have been a Christian for 50 years but everything is going wrong. All my children have turned against me. It seems everyone else is right and I am always wrong no matter how right I think my motivation is. I’m living in an upside down world.

    1. Steve says:

      I’m sorry to hear about your struggles. But! He cares for you and now not only is Jesus praying for you p, but I am too. God Bless!

    2. Maria J Allen says:

      You are not alone, but wouldn’t it be nice to see more evidence of that! It would feel great to share your struggle with someone else who understands completely. Jesus is that person. God became a human man because He knows we crave human contact to sooth our blows. Hang in there, dear friend. Jesus knows it all. He put you here. Don’t dwell on the why. Thank Him for saving you. Ask Him for help. Others can help, but not like Him.
