Have you ever wondered how Jesus' crucifixion could be a pattern for your life?
Ellen had been tossing and turning, unable to sleep well for the past three nights. She was thinking about something she had read: that Jesus is the pattern for your life. However, there was something else bothering her and she didn't know exactly what.
Suddenly she thought of Angela. At last she had the answer. She had not spoken to Angela for three months. Some comments Angela had made earlier had hurt her, and now her pride was standing in the way of reconciliation.
She also realized that Jesus being the pattern for her life now meant that she had to follow the path of crucifixion. She had to crucify the pride within herself that was keeping her from being more attuned to God and more loving to others. She didn't have to die on a cross - only that part of her which caused the separation between her and Angela had to die.
For Ellen, seeing Jesus as the pattern meant experiencing crucifixion in a part of her so that a new resurrected relationship with Angela could grow.
