• Self-sacrifice is where men find peace and purpose

I Corinthians 4:15-17

15 For if you were to have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers. In Christ Jesus I have become a father to you through the gospel. 16 So I implore you, be followers of me. 17 Therefore I have sent Timothy to you. He is my beloved son and is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my ways which are in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.

I Corinthians 11:1

11 Follow me as I follow Christ.

Philippians 3:17

17 Brothers, become fellow imitators with me and observe those who walk according to our example.

Philippians 4:9

Do those things which you have both learned and received, and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

II Thessalonians 3:7-9

For you know how you should follow us. For we were not idle among you, neither did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but we worked tirelessly and toiled night and day that we might not be a burden to any of you. We did this, not because we did not have that right, but to make ourselves an example for you to follow.

II Timothy 3:10-11

10 But you have observed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, tolerance, love, patience, 11 persecutions, and afflictions, which came to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—what persecutions I endured! But the Lord delivered me out of them all.

I Timothy 4:12

12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.
