You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
6 Though he was God, 1
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges 2 ;
he took the humble position of a slave 3
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form, 4
8 he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
