27 Only (A)let your manner of life be (B)worthy[a] of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you (C)that you are standing firm in one spirit, with (D)one mind (E)striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is (F)a clear sign to them of their destruction, but (G)of your salvation, and that from God. 29 For (H)it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also (I)suffer for his sake, 30 engaged in the same (J)conflict that (K)you saw I had and now hear that I still have.

Christ's Example of Humility

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from (L)love, any (M)participation in the Spirit, any (N)affection and sympathy, (O)complete my joy by being (P)of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from (Q)selfish ambition or (R)conceit, but in (S)humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you (T)look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
