For all of us of mankind have done wrong against God’s statutes and authority being justified clean by His grace through the death of Jesus on the cross.

As humans we all sin and fall away from God and his magnificence of lis love and faithfulness. We turn our hearts against him even when we are believers and followers. For God knew after he created mankind that they were sinners and so this was why he knew to save us all…me and you… he had to sacrifice his only son for each and everyone of us so that we make be saved of all our sins m, as he knew even as followers and after Christ’s death temptation and sin would still be in our lives. So Jesus sacrificed himself by the commandment of his father to pay in full our short comings and wrong doings. By his sacrifice of himself and the resurrection of his life after death on that cross that he has been given grounds for making us clean by grace in Christ though he asks for a intimate relationship with him and for us as God’s children to ask repentance for the events of our sins we have made. He wants is to be faithful with him and love him even though we are still sinners. He promises to not leave or abandon us or make us orphans because of the wrongs we have done against him and to him knowing before we do that we would do wrongs of all magnitudes. God knew us before we were even born and knew ourselves and he did nothing but given us perfect love and still remains loving to us through all we do. He promises he will always do what he wants to do to only give you the best for us. He wants us to trust him and not fear him as he is our protection and faith. He will not falter against us as we do him, and he knew we would which is why Christ had to pay ransom for our lives. A pastor once said that the story of the resurrection is always looked and talked about it being a story about his life… yes that is true however it’s also a story about me and you because had Christ not died upon the cross to save all mankind from our sins we would have suffered and perished and died in sever punishment for our own sinfulness we continue to do so the days of his death and resurrection was about you, about me about us. Had we not sinned than no ransom payment would have to have been made in the first place however we do live in sinful nature and God had to find someway for us to be saved and his only option was to sacrifice one for thousands, for us. For had he not we would have gotten the ultimate punishment into hell. So the real story is also about me and you and our very own salvation. For he knew and still knows all about each and every one of all of us. He knows the wrongs we will commit and when.

In Jeremiah 29 his word says

“11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

29:11 I know the thoughts that I think: The Lord here places considerable emphasis on His unchangeable plan to bring peace and not evil. a future . . . a hope: God had not terminated His relationship with Judah; He remembered His covenant promises of restoration (see Deut. 30:1–10).

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Christ is basically saying

I the living Christ know everything about you even before you knew yourself. I know all your plans even in silence without being told and all I have wanted is goods for you and not that of evil. I want the best for you thoughts of peace for you and not evil to give you a good future of peace and hope.

Christ’s love outnumbers the love of any kind we know, no one can show the deep love of Christ that he showed toward us, however he wants to teach us the love so that we may be in his own image. He had Judah betray him and yet he still accepted him as one of his. He had peter deny knowledge of him and knowing him in anyway yet he still continued to love him in every way. That is the kind of live God has towards us. None of us can Love that much as much as he did for if we were backstabbed we’d become hostile and end the relationship with the one who turned against us. He always remembers his covenants he made with us in restoration with us.
