Philippians 2:5-8 (HCSB)
5 Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus,
6 who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God
as something to be used for His own advantage.
7 Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave,
taking on the likeness of men. And when He had come as a man
in His external form, 8 He humbled Himself by becoming obedient
to the point of death—even to death on a cross.
