Philippians 2

This passage has become one of my favorites. There is so much great stuff that could be brought out from this passage. I had several people either comment or email me when I suggested that they spend 10 minutes meditating on the Ephesians 2 passage. If you found benefit in that, then I think that you could get just as much out of this passage. Again, remember that you must spend some legitimate time *even if only 10 minutes* in sustained thought. Meditate on God's word and it will pay rich rewards. In fact, this passage is actually pretty easy to memorize. If you have not already, this might be a good passage (or maybe a few verses from it) to commit to memory.

Philippians 2

3Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;

4do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

5Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in (J)Christ Jesus,

6who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

7but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

8Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

9For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

10so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

In Christ alone,
