Ascension Sunday

Yesterday was Ascension Sunday on the Church Calendar.  It comes 40 days after Πάσχα (or Paska grk.) commemorating the incarnate Son of God:

"and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all". (Ephesians 1.19-23)

As believers this is important theology for us reminding us the Christ has Ascended and now sits at the right had of God the Father where He is currently ruling and reigning till his return.  What are some implications of this?
