Philippians 3:17-21. This is a continuation of what Paul has been teaching the whole time, namely that we should live Christ like lives. Earlier when Paul said that we are to live "worthy of the Gospel together" and last week he said "one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead . . ." All of Paul's teaching is designed to show us how to live out of our true identity in Christ. Verse 17 sets the tone for the entire segment. "Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us."
