If the question is asking why Jesus was incarnated through the "normal" human process of gestation and birth, rather than just "appearing" as a full-grown adult, I'd say that it was necessary in order for Him to fully share in our nature (except without sin) -- so that He could both identify with, and serve as an example for, humans at any stage of their earthly life (Hebrews 4:15). In addition, it enabled His sacrifice of Himself for the sins of humanity to be acceptable in God's sight because (as noted in Galatians 4:4-5) He had been born "under the Law" in order to perfectly fulfill all of its requirements (which included the ritual of circumcision on the eighth day after birth (Leviticus 12:3), and also the duties of children and adults toward their parents, which had been important enough in God's eyes to be included in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:12)), of which no other human had been -- or could be -- capable.
I asked my son-in-law this very question, and this is how he replied, "I think that God wants us to realize that he is one of us. No we're not deities. But God is not some distant being who wants nothing to do with us. He walked a mile in our shoes." Tony was speaking of His Incarnation (John 1:14).
