“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”
With these words, Paul begins the eleventh chapter to 1 Corinthians. He did not only teach; he lived his beliefs. As a result, he called his audience to follow him as he followed the example of Christ.
One of the strongest correctives to the cultural Christianity of our time would be for every believer to live in such a way that others could follow their example as they follow the example of Christ.
Today, let these words live in you. Live the example of Christ that others may see Jesus in you.
