I often call myself a follower of Jesus.
We sometimes as the question: What would Jesus do?
Christ is our supreme example.
His Spirit guides and councils us every day.

First and foremost we are called to be imitators of God!

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Eph 5 v 1

But the writers of the New Testament also suggested that we imitate great men of the faith.

Paul even told the believers at Corinth to imitate him.
And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. - 1 Cor 11 v 1 (Also 1 Thess 1 v 6)

The Church a Thessaloniki were congratulated for imitating the churches in Judea.

For you, brothers, became imitators of God's churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own countrymen the same things those churches. 1 Thess 2 v 14

In John's letter to his friend Gaius he contrast two people, Diotrephes & Demetrius.

who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge our authority. 3 John 1 v 9

Demetrius has received a good testimony from everyone, and from the truth itself.
3 John 1 v 12

And he encourages Gaius to imitate the good example of Demetrius.

Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. 3 John 1 v 11

Follow Christ, Imitate God and imitate great men of God!

Copying can be a great thing!
