Bible: Phil 2:3-11

2:3 Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition 1  or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. 2:4 Each of you should be concerned 2  not only 3  about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well. 4  2:5 You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had, 5 

2:6 6 

who though he existed in the form of God 7 

did not regard equality with God

as something to be grasped,

2:7 but emptied himself

by taking on the form of a slave, 8 

by looking like other men, 9 

and by sharing in human nature. 10 

2:8 He humbled himself,

by becoming obedient to the point of death

– even death on a cross!

2:9 As a result God exalted him

and gave him the name

that is above every name,

2:10 so that at the name of Jesus

every knee will bow

in heaven and on earth and under the earth –

2:11 and every tongue confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord

to the glory of God the Father.
