In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.

Christ himself was like God in everything.

But he did not think that being equal with

God was something to be used for his own benefit.

But he gave up his place with God and made

himself nothing.

He was born to be a man

and became like a servant.

And when he was living as a man,

he humbled himself and was

fully obedient to God,

even when that caused his death--

death on a cross.

So God raised him to the highest place.

God made his name greater

than every other name

so that every knee will bow to

the name of Jesus--

everyone in heaven, on earth,

and under the earth.

And everyone will confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord

and bring glory to God the Father.

Philippians 2: 5-11 NCV
