“Imitate Me” – It’s a Humbling Statement, Not Prideful

· “Imitate Me” is said by Paul out of parental care

· He’s not saying “look how great I am”, this is not prideful on his part

· It takes humility to say “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1)

“Imitate Me” – It’s the Only Jesus Some will Ever See

· The Corinthians had little to go on to know what Jesus was like

· You are the only Jesus that many people in your Oikos are going to see

· Our lives, though not perfect, are to be lived so that people can see Jesus through our lives

“Imitate Me” – Do We Embrace the Challenge?

· This is the heart of counter culture living – living like Jesus

· Living our heavenly culture of grace, freedom, humility, service, compassion, love here on earth

· Living our lives so we can say to those we invest in, “Imitate Me as I Imitate Jesus”

· We have the Holy Spirit living within us, to empower us to live like Jesus
