New American Standard Bible
27 Only conduct yourselves in a manner (A)worthy of the (B)gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are (C)standing firm in (D)one spirit, with one [a]mind (E)striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 in no way alarmed by your opponents—which is a (F)sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God. 29 For to you (G)it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to (H)suffer for His sake, 30 experiencing the same (I)conflict which (J)you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
Be Like Christ
2 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any (K)fellowship of the Spirit, if any [b](L)affection and compassion, 2 (M)make my joy complete [c]by (N)being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 3 Do nothing [d]from [e](O)selfishness or (P)empty conceit, but with humility of mind (Q)regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 (R)do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 (S)Have this attitude [f]in yourselves which was also in (T)Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He (U)existed in the (V)form of God, (W)did not regard equality with God a thing to be [g]grasped, 7 but [h](X)emptied Himself, taking the form of a (Y)bond-servant, and (Z)being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, (AA)He humbled Himself by becoming (AB)obedient to the point of death, even (AC)death [i]on a cross. 9 (AD)For this reason also, God (AE)highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him (AF)the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus (AG)every knee will bow, of (AH)those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is (AI)Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
