    In My Opinion:

    1 John 2: 1-2
    Good News Translation

    Christ Our Helper
    1 I am writing this to you, my children, so that you will not sin; but if anyone does sin, we have someone who pleads with the Father on our behalf—Jesus Christ, the righteous one. 2 And Christ himself is the means by which our sins are forgiven, and not our sins only, but also the sins of everyone.

    There's not much to say about this scripture...

    Not only has Christ paid the price for our sins, if we sin again he will put in a good word with The Father on our behalf so that he gives us mercy and grace

    This is certainly good news for all us sinners!

    So, basically, with Jesus we have a friend in high places

    And note the use of the word "everyone" - any human being can come to Christ and have their sins forgiven, regardless of race, language, or culture - his mission is universal

    In My Opinion!

    The sacrifice of Jesus satisfied perfect divine justice for us by providing the righteous-and-just basis for the pardoning of our sins - Romans 3:23-26; 5:12
    Jesus' sacrifice made it favorable for us to seek and receive right relations with our Heavenly Father - Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:17; 1 John 4:10
    No one comes to the Father except through Jesus - John 14:6 - Jesus is the 'way'.
    Because of Jesus' sacrifice then God could extend mercy or pardon for our sins if we keep faith in Jesus - John 3:16; Romans 6:23,7
    This is why Matthew 20:28 says Jesus' ransom covers MANY.....
    Thus, God's love moved Him to make that arrangement whereby righteous justice would be satisfied for us descendants of fallen father Adam.
    This means through Jesus we could achieve peace with God - Colossians 1:19-23
    Achieve peace when we repent and do our best to abandon wrong doing.- Proverbs 28:13; 2 Peter 3:9
    Then God remembers our sins No more - Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:7-12
