Philippians 3:17

 
Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.
Philippians 3:17

Paul, in writing to the believers in Philippi, was encouraging them to follow his example of living a Christ-like life. He also notes that they have believers that are living examples of what this looks like and to pay close attention. Paul, in his letters to the Corinthians, says to "imitate me, as I imitate Christ." Every church should have some solid believers that don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk, and those are the ones we are to imitate. They are the ones that are selflessly giving themselves away on behalf of others, using the scripture to make life choices, and encouraging others to keep their eyes on Christ.

Examples such as these help us to push forward in our sanctification. Examples like this provide us with the encouragement that this Christian life is real and not some lofty fantasy. So, as Paul would encourage those in Philippi, I encourage you to note those who so walk, and follow their example and avoid the temptation to just settle in.
