"For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another— 26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself."
Christ ascended to heaven for us. His incarnation as a man was for us. His faithful sacrifice on the cross was to put away sin for us. His resurrection was for us. And His ascension was to appear in the presence of God for us. This gives us courage to confess our sins completely and openly to our God. Jesus who died for our sin is right there with God, accepted and honored by God.
