1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

Many times, the Apostle Paul admonishes us to follow him as he followed Christ. He wrote of us being Changed to the image of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 3:18  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


So how do we follow Christ/Paul? We must know who and what the man Jesus Christ was as He walked on the earth in a human body.
