You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

Though he was God,*

he did not think of equality with God

as something to cling to.

Instead, he gave up his divine privileges* ;

he took the humble position of a slave*

and was born as a human being.

When he appeared in human form,*

he humbled himself in obedience to God

and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor

and gave him the name above all other names,

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.
