I do not write these things to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children… I urge you, then, be imitators of me.
We might think that as Christians we don’t follow man… that’s true and not true at the same time. We do follow men and women who follow after Jesus. If you are in a position to influence people, look at what Paul did. He calls people to task, but is careful that they know he’s not just coming down on them to be negate, it’s for a reason. His remedy to their problems is to follow his example. Leaders, that means we have to be walking the walk, not just talking the talk. We follow Jesus, as well as those good examples who go before us, a long chain of followers of our Lord all the way back to Christ himself. Press on, speak up, follow Jesus!
