Title: Genuine Imitators
Series: Summer 2021
Author: John Freeman

What does it mean to be genuine imitators of Christ? Philippians 4:8 finds its way onto Christian bookstore plaques and embroidered pillows, but what about verse 9?

Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy—dwell on these things. Do what you have learned and received and heard from me, and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 CSV

If we meditate on genuine qualities from God and imitate genuine followers of God, we are changed by genuine discipleship with God.
