The writer to the Hebrews encourages us to follow the example of our leaders who teach us the Word of God:

  • We are to remember their example in so far as they are following the example of Christ.
  • Having remembered, we are to imitate their behavior, considering the outcome of a godly life.

Elders in the church are challenged to be the best examples they can be to those they lead, and all of us as believers are challenged to consider who it is we have as our examples and heroes in life - will we grow more or less like Christ through following them?
