If I am about me, I am selfish. If I am about you, I am humble.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)
Jesus can take a situation far from the realm of God's purpose and cause it to serve the purposes of God in astonishing ways.
Although Jesus is the Second Person of the Trinity, co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial with God the Father, he nevertheless entered into humanity for our sakes.
