He renounced His citizenship in Heaven, and though He was rich, for our sakes He become poor, that we through His poverty might become rich! (2Cor.8:9) Jesus not only had to come down amongst us, but He had to be one of us! He had to become a member of the human community.
He came as a meek and quiet, weak and helpless baby. He not only adapted Himself to our bodily form, but also conformed to the human ways of life. He was human. He got tired, He got hungry, He got weary. He was subject to all these things, even as we are, yet without sin that He might be a good High Priest, have compassion upon us, know how we feel, know when we're footsore and weary, know when we've had enough! (Heb.4:15) God sent Jesus to become a human being in order that He might better reach us with His Love, and be better able to communicate with us on the lowly level of our own human understanding.
The Bible says, "He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust!" (Psa.103:14), having worn that frame Himself, suffering in it and dying in it for our sakes! He came down here to our level that He might take us with Him back up to His! What a miracle, all for our sakes!
