Live in Such a Way Others Can Copy You

We have all heard someone say “Do as I say, not as I do.”  Perhaps you have even said that yourself.  Paul told others to do as he did.  Bold statement?  Maybe.  But Paul could tell others to imitate him because he imitated Christ.  Would you be willing to let others do as you do in regard to your speech, your thoughts, your deeds?  “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1)
