  • 4 love of God says:

    Plea for Unity and Humility.*

    1If there is any encouragement in Christ, any solace in love, any participation in the Spirit, any compassion and mercy, 2complete my joy by being of the same mind, with the same love, united in heart, thinking one thing.a 3Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves,b 4each looking out not for his own interests, but [also] everyone for those of others.c

    5Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus,*

    6Who,* though he was in the form of God,d
    DID NOT REGARD EQUALITY WITH GOD SOMETHING TO BE GRASPED.*
    7Rather, he emptied himself,

    taking the form of a slave,

    coming in human likeness;*
    and found human in appearance,e
    8he humbled himself,f
    becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.*
    9Because of this, God greatly exalted him

    and bestowed on him the name*
    that is above every name,g
    10that at the name of Jesus

    every knee should bend,*
    of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,h
    11and every tongue confess that

    Jesus Christ is Lord,*
    to the glory of God the Father.i
