Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ,
if any comfort from His love,
if any fellowship of the Spirit,
if any affection and mercy,
make my joy complete
by being of the same mind,
maintaining the same love,
united in spirit,
intent on one purpose.
Do nothing from selfishness or vain conceit,
but with humility consider one another
as more important than yourselves;
do not merely look out for your own personal interests,
but also for the interests of others.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, as He already existed in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant,
and coming in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death,
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and that every tongue will confess ~ acknowledge ~
that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
~ Philippians 2:1-11
