The Word for this is atonement (setting at one with God). Because Jesus is God, His Vicarious Atonement could count for everyone. Because of Christ’s finished work we are justified (declared not guilty).
To redeem us, God’s Son had to humble himself. This means: He made himself poor and lowly; didn’t fully use his divine power and glory.
