In Philippians 2:1-18, we read about the importance of humility in Christianity. In this chapter, Paul explains what mature Christians do and how they should behave. He told the believers to imitate Jesus as much as they could . Then he said that Jesus was God in the flesh, but he did not use it to his advantage. Jesus willingly humbled himself, became human, came to earth, died for our sins, and surrendered to God the Father's plan of salvation for humankind. Paul further told Philippians that just like Jesus, they should not act out of ambition, selfishness, or vain arrogance, but should be humble and should treat others better and take care of others. Humility is the main focus of these verses, and unity in Christianity is not possible without humbleness and humility.
