Philippians 2:1-11

Christ's Example of Humility

1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from 1love, any 2participation in the Spirit, any 3affection and sympathy,
2 4complete my joy by being 5of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
3 Do nothing from 6rivalry or 7conceit, but in 8humility count others more significant than yourselves.
4 Let each of you 9look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 10Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,a
6 11who, though he was in 12the form of God, did not count equality with God 13a thing to be grasped,
7 but 14made himself nothing, taking the form of a 15servant,b16 being born in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by 17becoming obedient to the point of death, 18even death on a cross.
9 19Therefore 20God has 21highly exalted him and bestowed on him 22the name that is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus 23every knee should bow, 24in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and 25every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is 26Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
