References:

Paul wrote in his letter to the Philippians for them to imitate him because he modeled what it meant to follow Christ.  He never said he was perfect, but he knew that he was at least a few steps ahead of them.  In the same way, we are to find someone to follow who would be willing to be a mentor, a leader, while at the same time we are to lead someone else.  That is where maturity comes in, by following someone who is more mature.  Discipleship happens when we lead someone else, showing them what it looks like to follow Christ.  That is when a legacy of life is left is when you lead someone in such a way to equip them to lead others
