Jesus went to the cross for you
Jesus tells us that God knows us so well that he even knows how many hairs we have on our heads. When Jesus went to the cross his mind was on us and on what he was accomplishing. He bore the pain so we could be free.
God didn't choose to suffer in such a way so we could revel in God's suffering but so we could understand the depth of His love for us. So the cross overcomes death, brings us close to God and is an example to us of the love of God.
What Jesus was thinking about on the way to the cross
I know what Jesus was thinking about when he died, I know the name of the person he was thinking about. It was your name.
