Philippians 2:5-11

5 Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 Who, existing in the form of God, didn’t consider equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also highly exalted Him, and gave to Him the Name which is above every name; 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, those on earth, and those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

John 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God didn’t send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.
