REPEATING THE PATTERN           Page 5
V.21 (cont'd.)

** How does this wonderful knowledge equip you to live more for Christ today? How does it compel you to live a more godly life?

Knowing that God has prepared so much for us who, by His grace, have come to know Him; we should spend our life "Repeating the Pattern" just out of sheer gratitude. cf. 1Corinthians 2:9

** How is this marvelous transformation going to be accomplished?

"...by the exertion of the power that He has..."
There is no limit to the power which has been given over to the Lord Jesus Christ.

** How will Jesus demonstrate His limitless power?

By subjecting "...all things to Himself." He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, all will bow to
Him in homage. cf. Philippians 2:9-11

** Even though we exists in a perishable, mortal, humble state; we can exalt Christ through godly living by "Repeating the Pattern" set before us in Scripture. How difficult is that to do?

It is impossible! We cannot be genuinely holy, we cannot obtain salvation and we cannot be Christlike in our own strength.

With men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible!
cf. Matthew 19:23-26 (All see)

EXTRICATE

** From where does Paul get his example, in order to be a pattern for us to follow?

From Jesus Christ, Himself. Remember 1Corinthians 11:1

** Who were some others, given to us in chapter two, that proved to have lives which we could pattern ourselves after?

Timothy and Epaphroditus
