If Jesus is a Servant, how can He be God?

Question posited on FB: “…please acts 3v13 says ESV: The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his SERVANT Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. if the bible called Jesus a servant of God, then why are we calling him a son of God?”

Response…

Jesus Christ, who is God in flesh, left Eternity in obedience to His Father in order to fulfill the Scriptures and promises of God concerning the defeat of Lucifer (1 John 3:8) and the redemption of human kind culminating at the Crucifixion (Matthew 26:28). Though God the Father and God the Son are coequal as One-God (John 10:30), there is an agreed upon delineation of authority in the Godhead (John 6:38) as this agreement is essential for order and structure and as an example to both the angelic and human creation concerning our obligation to respect authority and order in all things.

God the Father has given all things into the hands of the Son (John 3:35) and the Son entered Time to do the will of the Father; therefore, for all intents and purposes, Jesus is serving God the Father and is therefore considered a Servant…not only to God but to mankind as God the Son humbled Himself and took on the responsibilities of a servant.
