Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:16
Who, being in very naturea God,2 did not consider equality with God3 something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,4 taking the very natureb of a servant,5 being made in human likeness.68
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death7-- even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him8 to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,910
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,10 in heaven and on earth and under the earth,1111
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,12 to the glory of God the Father.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,1313
for it is God who works in you14 to will and to act according to his good purpose.1514
Do everything without complaining16 or arguing,
so that you may become blameless17 and pure, children of God18 without fault in a crooked and depraved generation,19 in which you shine like stars in the universe
