But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. Hebrews 2:9-10
Lessons from Jesus' humanity:

Jesus is the perfect model.
He is worth imitating.
Jesus is our sacrifice.
He died for you and me.
Jesus is the conqueror.
He conquered death to give us eternal life.
He is our High Priest.
He is merciful, loving and understanding.
God, in Jesus, became a living, breathing human being.
For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
God`s grace to us, led Jesus to His death.
Jesus' perfect obedience (which led Him down the road of suffering) demonstrates that He was the complete sacrifice for us. Through suffering, Jesus completed the work necessary for our own salvation.
Our suffering can make us more sensitive servants of God.
People who have known pain are able to react out with compassion to others who hurt.
Our sins demanded payment to a holy God. Jesus became that payment for us.
