“God has a great plan for your life. To follow God’s plan, you need to follow his blueprint. Jesus is God’s blueprint for your life.”
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Jesus is the blueprint of God for your life. The Bible says that we have all sinned and corrupted God’s perfect righteous image in which we were created. Even though God sent us the Law of Moses, it was rendered powerless in that it was weakened by our sinful nature. Therefore, he sent Jesus to reconcile us to himself. Because Jesus is God – God incarnate – he was and is sinless. Even so, God planned to allow Jesus to take the curse of sin when he died for us on the cross. You see, God ascribed your sin to Jesus so that, by repentance and faith, you could be ascribed God’s righteousness. In Christ, you become the righteousness of God. Jesus in you is God’s original blueprint for your life.
Many people think that they need to work really hard to earn God’s favour. This is impossible because all have sinned and fallen short of God’s goodness. God is so holy and righteous that we would need to become as he is to be right with him. But Jesus is already as God is because Jesus is God as a man. Therefore, to be right with God you and I need to intentionally turn from sin and live by faith in Christ. The moment we truly repent of sin we admit our failings and die to the old sinful nature; we are crucified with Christ. Then the moment you exercise faith in Christ you put confidence in God’s blueprint and live by his ascribed righteousness and purpose.
God has a great plan for your life. He loves you and desires for you to walk according to the plan he knows he has for you. To follow God’s plan, you need to follow his blueprint. Jesus is God’s blueprint for your life.
