1If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,
2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 Your attitude should be the same as that OF CHRIST JESUS:
6who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothering, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness
8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-even death on a cross!
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave im the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
