In your lives you must ·think and act like [have the same attitude as] Christ Jesus.
·Christ himself was like God in everything [ Who, being in the form of God].
But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be ·used for his own benefit [or grasped; seized; held on to].
But he ·gave up his place with God and made himself nothing [ emptied himself].
He ·became like [ took the form of] a ·servant [slave; bondservant]
and was born ·as a man [ in the likeness of humanity/men].
And ·when he was living [ being found in appearance/likeness] as a ·man [human being],
he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God,
even ·when that caused his [to the point of] death—death on a cross.
Phillippians 2:5-8 EXB
