Christians in the region of Galatia in modern Turkey, started well in becoming Christians, but then someone persuaded them to accept circumcision as a matter of salvation. Paul wrote to them, revealing the problems with doing such. He also expressed that he had worked hard for their sakes, but because of their turn toward the Law of Moses, he stated that he feared for them. Then he wrote,

Brethren, I urge you to become like me, for I became like you. You have not injured me at all (Galatians 4.12). 

They had not hurt him, but he had done everything to become like them as he sought to convert them to Christ. Now, Paul urged them to become like him, of course as he imitated Jesus Christ.
