The Trailblazer

The word "trailblazer" derives its meaning from the pioneers who would create a new path through the wilderness, through unchartered territory. The trailblazer would leave blazes on trees, directions made by slashing into the bark, to shows others the way to follow. Trailblazers show others that something is possible that hitherto had not been attempted or seemed possible, thus giving encouragement to others who would follow in their footsteps.

Jesus Christ has certainly blazed a trail for us to follow! His resurrection has blazed a trail through the frontier of death that gives us hope and reassurance that we can follow in His footsteps. The dark wilderness of fear and doubt has been cleared and the way to life has been paved and lit.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time." (1 Peter 1:3-5 NIV)

Keep following in His footsteps.

Yours in Christ,

Peter Rogers
