Voices at the Table
1 Corinthians 11:1 

“Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ.”

How did Apostle Paul know the example of Jesus to follow?

We follow and lead by people’s _______________. (not primarily by what they say)

What “example” is Paul specifically talking about? Paul is going to apply the method of Jesus.

Missing ingredient in the church: This model/ example is called _______________. (Mark 3:13; Matt. 28:18-20; 2 Tim. 2:2) 

To live the example of a godly Christ-filled life, we need to avoid _______________ and take some initiative.

Consider three models from Scripture.

1. _______________ for an older mentor. (Paul) 

Jesus and Paul’s model of ministry should also be our method of ministry.

2. __________ out a peer. (Barnabas) Acts 9:26-28; Acts 13: 2-4

3. __________ into someone younger. (Timothy) Acts 16:1-4

Why do we need these voices at our table?

We need this up-close and personal relationship to model a godly lifestyle and hold us _______________.

Mentors are examples of growth and _______________.

Discipleship can be either structured or _______________.

It must be _______________.

Do you have other voices at your table? Who is it? Who knows you? 

Take away ...
Pray today for at least one:
Paul (older)
Barnabas (peer)
Timothy (younger) 

Expect God to answer!
