If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any tenderness and mercies,
fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord and of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem the other better than himself.
Look not every man to his own things, but every man also to the things of others.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God,
but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.
And being found in the fashion of a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death--even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven and things on earth and things under the earth,
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Therefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
For it is God who worketh in you, both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Do all things without murmuring and disputing,
that ye may be blameless and unoffending, the sons of God, without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world,
holding forth the Word of Life, that I may rejoice in the Day of Christ that I have not run in vain, neither labored in vain.
Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am joyful and rejoice with you all.
For the same cause also be ye joyful, and rejoice with me.
