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
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
