In His Steps

I was thinking about following Christ. Many different opinions exist about Jesus and what would He do in this situation or that situation. A person can get confused by listening to all the sources.

I remember  a few years back when my children were children, and we had a Super Nintendo. It came with Super Mario Brothers, which takes you through many levels and at the end of each level there is a castle with a dragon that you have to slay.Mario

Then finally at the end of the last level is the biggest and baddest dragon, and to get to him you have to swim, fly, run and crawl through every obstacle imaginable.

My son and I worked for months getting to that last dragon. Killing all the other dragons and advancing to the next levels. But the deal was this; once those dragons had been dealt with, you were provided with shortcuts thought the levels.

In other words, you didnt have to kill those dragons again!!!!

Now, here enters my youngest daughter. She comes in after us doing all the work and just breezes through and says ” That wasn’t so hard”    She could go anywhere on the map she wanted to, at any level. The dragons were already dealt with.

Freinds, that is similar to our life in Christ.  Read this passage from the Word.

Col 2:13  And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
Col 2:14  blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross.
Col 2:15  Having stripped rulers and authorities, He made a show of them publicly, triumphing over them in it.
See?  Christ has paved the way. He has already triumphed over every ruler and power of darkness! He took all the obstacles and nailed them to the cross!

Just like my son and I paved the way for my daughter on a silly little computer game, Christ has paved the way for us.  We can walk in His steps if we so desire. And if we do fall down, He will pick us up.

A good thought for today.
