If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ,
if there is any consolation of love,
If there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,
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 empty conceit, but with humility of mind,
let each of you regard one another as more important than himself.
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, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality
with God a thing to be grasped.
But emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being
made in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by
becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the
name which is above every name,
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in
heaven, and on earth, and under the earth,
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to
the glory of God the Father.
