John Chrysostom on Emulation

lBe imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.” This is a rule of the most perfect Christianity, this is a landmark exactly laid down, this is the point that stands highest of all; viz. the seeking those things which are for the common profit: which also Paul himself declared, by adding, even as I also am of Christ. For nothing can so make a man an imitator of Christ as caring for his neighbors. — St. John Chrysostom, Homily on 1 Corinthians 11
