Tracing Jesus

4 Nov

Tracing Jesus…

Did you ever have to draw something in school and you tried and got a mess? But then you see the masterpiece. You trace a picture and put the masterpiece behind your paper; follow the lines and soon you have a pretty good image.

In 1 Peter 2:21, it says that the Lord is, in the original language, the word is huppogrammos, which means the underwriting. It means the writing that’s placed underneath that scribes use to copy.

So Jesus’s life is the huppogrammos, the underwriting. Let me tell you how to apply this to your life. When you follow your own will, you’ll end up with a mess. But your life can become a masterpiece. How?

Realize Jesus is not just the teacher or the hope in your life; he’s the huppogrammos. It means He’s the one you trace. How do you put Him up to your life? You line up your life, your heart His way, and see if it lines up.

The minute you start tracing it you guide everything by that. Follow your course as Jesus because He is the underwriting, the huppogrammos, and your life will become a masterpiece.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

Seek today to follow the footsteps of Jesus in every situation – what would Jesus do? Go and do likewise.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
