Imitating Christ's Humility

1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit,1 if any tenderness and compassion,2 2 then make my joy complete3 by being like-minded,4 having the same love, being one5 in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.6 Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,7 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.8 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same attitude of mind Christ Jesus had:9 6 Who, being in very naturea God,10 did not consider equality with God11 something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing12 by taking the very natureb of a servant,13 being made in human likeness.14 8 And being found in appearance as a human being, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death15-- 9 Therefore God exalted him16 to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,17 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,18 in heaven and on earth and under the earth,19 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,20 to the glory of God the Father.
