    Jesus, a man approved of God . . Acts 2:22 KJV

    . . . spent Himself for God.

    Doesn't that make sense given the account of His life on Earth?

    This was spoken by Him before His going to the cross:

    "I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do." John 17:4.
    "That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;" Philippians 2:15 (KJV)

    He was a representative man, a 2nd Adam, to redeem those lost by the 1st Adam. Approved means his (human) life was accepted by heaven to save others. The resurrection is proof of this, and was his enthronement in heaven.

    In other words, Jesus spent His life for God. Good. Thank you.

    Can you believe He "held in trust" the complete Godhead as a man?
