“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.”

1. John 2:6 NLT

Therefore,

“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”

Philippians‬ ‭2:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This means,

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” ‬‬

Philippians‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭NLT

Yes, just like Jesus, you should be humble and submissive,

“Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.” ‬‬

Philippians‬ ‭2:6-8‬ ‭NLT

Otherwise you would be like people who claim to know God, but deny Him by the way you live. You would not be obeying God and therefore you would be worthless for doing anything good. (See Titus 1:16)
