Listen Now:


Paul is saying, "As you see the expression of Christ in my life, let that be the expression in your life." He is putting himself up as an example. Do you see Christ working in my life, that is how He should be working in your life. Why? Because we have the same Christ. How do I know if it is the leading of the Lord or not? Well, what did Paul say? How did Paul handle it? How did that happen in Paul's life? In other words Paul is saying, "I am imitating Jesus Christ." Now that is a pretty bold statement to make to say, "I am an imitator of Jesus Christ.  He is saying, "Now all of you other Christians, you follow the Lord like I am following the Lord." That is a pretty bold statement to make.
