In principle, how does discipleship work?
- “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11);
- “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith” (Hebrews 13:7);
- “What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9);
- “You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, my persecutions and sufferings” (2 Timothy 3:10);
- “Beloved, do not imitate evil, but imitate good” (3 John 1:11).
- Love: People will imitate your life even when you don’t love them. But a leader who leads with love presents the best picture of Christ, and people will follow you best when you love them.
