What was He thinking?

He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds. Titus 2:14

Why would God Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, take on the frailty and limitations of human flesh and  submit to suffering and death? While His “why’s” are often beyond our comprehension, His “what’s,” His statement of purpose, seems to focus on the “what’s” Christ came to accomplish.

Lord, thanks for accomplishing for me what I could not accomplish for myself. Help me to do the good You have in mind for me to do.
