5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! –Philippians 2:5-8 (NIV)

 

6 ...did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, –Philippians 2:6 (ESV)

 

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” –Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) 

 

“So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David...” –1 Samuel 16:13 (NIV)

 

10 “King Saul had a spear in his hand and 11 he hurled it, saying to himself, “I’ll pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice.” –1 Samuel 18:10-11 (NIV)

–Psalm 56:3-4 (NIV)

 

“Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” –Matthew 26:53 (NIV)
