GOD-TRACKING IS BUILDING THE MODEL OF YOUR LIFE ON GOD’S PROTOTYPE
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
I once worked as a computer network controller for a major car manufacturer in South Africa. My office was in the IT department, located at the assembly plant for all models of the car. This was back in the good-old-days of hardwired computer networks, so part of my job required me to trace cabling throughout the factory. I loved this part of the job because it meant I could see how the cars were built. From the metal presses to the final body coating I could observe how luxury cars were expertly assembled.
From time to time an air of mystery would creep across the plant. A memo would make it rounds instructing staff to not divulge any information about the new secret shapes perceived under covers at the Research & Development department. A new model prototype had arrived from overseas and was being tested. From this prototype, many new luxury cars would be modelled. Once tested and approved, the design specifications of this prototype were fed into every computer along the assembly line, resulting in thousands of expertly crafted luxury cars being produced on its specifications.
Jesus was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit. He is not like any other man before or after. He is the Son of God – Emmanuel – God with us. He is called the Word of God, that is, the Word became flesh and dwelt on earth. Jesus Christ is the exact literal image of the eternal invisible God. Jesus is God incarnate. He is the sinless perfect prototype for the regenerate man. His plans have no flaws. His design is a mirror of the Creator. As with any prototype, Jesus the Christ was tested and approved. After his baptism by John, where God affirmed him as his perfect Son, Jesus was led into the wilderness where he endured intense temptation to sin. These tests were gruelling but Jesus, God’s prototype, stood strong. You see, he is designed according to the perfect blueprint – God himself.
From this immaculate and perfect prototype, God has produced many, many similar models. You are one of them, if you acknowledge Christ. You see, when you confessed Jesus as your Lord and put your faith in his death and resurrection, you were born again. Your old design fell away and you were remodelled according to his perfect blueprint. Because Jesus suffered intense temptation when he was tested, he will help you in your tests. In him, you are more than a conqueror. In him you stand saved, delivered and proved.

I base every choice, every relationship, every activity in my life on his blueprint for holy living
“Dear God, thank you so much for Jesus. Thank you that he came as the exact representation of who you are. I turn my back on sin and depravity and acknowledge Jesus Christ as my Lord and saviour. I choose to plan my life according to your plans for me. Thank you, Jesus, that you suffered when you were tempted. Because of your suffering, you help me when I am tempted. I repent of all sin and fix my eyes on Jesus, the perfecter of my faith. Jesus is my example. Therefore, I base every choice, every relationship, every activity in my life on his blueprint for holy living. Amen.”
