Doesn't sacrifice mean, in layman's terms, that you give up something you really don't want to give up for the sake of another? Jesus gave up continual companionship with His Father and the Holy Spirit to "sacrifice Himself" by agreeing to come down to earth and take on the bonds of humanity so that He could show all of mankind how it IS POSSIBLE to live FOR GOD by CHOOSING TO DO SO. By His birth, He showed obedience to honor His agreement to the Father. By His childhood, He showed that God's Will is to be above anyone else's will - even his earthly "parents".

And because He is fully man, He understands our weaknesses and showed us through His perfect example how to rise above our fleshly desires to do the Will of the Father in the strength of the Holy Spirit. Soometimes we fail ... but in Christ we are perfect in God's eyes ...
