When I was young, just by showing me tracks, my Dad could tell me every animal that had passed through our yard the night before. I was more fascinated by the tracks than actually seeing the animal. I still like to identify every animal by his tracks.
We all make different tracks in this world. Perhaps we leave impressionable tracks and perhaps we leave tracks of shame. None of us leave perfect tracks.
Jesus must have made many tracks traveling from town to town during his lifetime. His are the only perfect tracks made in the history of time.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 says, "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeths good, and sinneth not."
We all have sinned. No perfect tracks for us. BUT, we could spend our lives trying to follow the tracks of Jesus.
I Kings 8:61 says, "Let your heart be perfect with the Lord, our God, to walk in His statues, and to keep His commandments, as at this day."
Isaiah 64:6 says, "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."
This verse tells us how imperfect we are, but for grace, we would all be lost.
Romans 6:14 says, "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid."
Keep your tracks aimed on the perfect tracks of Jesus. Colossians 1: 21-22 says, "And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight."
Follow His tracks and He will present you unblameable in God's sight.
