All rights reserved. Philippians 2:1-16 (Spoken Word with Music) Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE) 2 Does Christ speak to you? Does love call to you? Do you have a part in the Holy Spirit? Do you have any love and care for others? 2 Then make me very, very happy. Live in happiness with one another. Have the same love for each other. Think the same way. Agree together about things. All have one purpose in mind. 3 Do not try to prove you are better than others. Do not be proud of yourselves, but be humble. Think of other people as being better than yourselves. 4 Each one of you should not think only about himself, but about other people also. 5 Think the same way Jesus Christ thought. 6 He was in every way like God. Yet he did not think that being equal to God was something he must hold on to. 7 He gave this up and became a servant. He was born a baby. 8 And when he was a man, he was humble. He was even willing to die, yes, to die on a cross. 9 That is why God has made him very great. God has given him a name above every name. 10 Everyone in heaven, everyone on earth, and everyone under the earth will kneel before the name of Jesus. 11 Everyone will admit that Jesus Christ is Lord. They will praise God the Father for this. 12 My dear people, you have always obeyed me. God has saved you from wrong ways. Now show this by the good things that you do. You must live that way, not only when I am with you, but much more now that I am not with you. Think of how wrong it will be if you do not. Try hard to work out how to do it. 13 For God is at work in you. He helps you want to do it. And he helps you do what he wants you to do. 14 Do everything without grumbling or making trouble. 15 In that way you will be completely good. No one will be able to say anything wrong about you. You will be God's good children living amongst bad people. Among them you will shine like lights in the world. 16 You will have the message of life for them. ...
