Why Did He Do It?

“Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows.”  Isaiah 53:4 NIV

Why did Jesus live on earth as long as he did? Why not step into our world just long enough to die for our sins and then leave? Why not a sinless year or week?  Why did He have to live a life? To take on our sins is one thing, but to take on our sunburns, our sore throats? To experience death, yes – but to put up with life? To put up with long roads, long days, and short tempers? Why did He do it?
Because he wants you to trust Him.
