Who Are You Following
Philippians 3:17-21

I. Follow the right leader(s)

Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.
Philippians 3:17-19 (ESV)

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV)

II. Right Leaders teach us how to live in the right kingdom

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
Philippians 3:20-21 (ESV)

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God’s elect, strangers in the world,
1 Peter 1:1 (NIV)

I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
1 Peter 2:11-12 (NIV)
