A ransom.

Admittedly, when I think of ransom money, I think of the Lindbergh Baby and other high-profile kidnappings that have told vivid stories of large sums of money in exchange for a wealthy, kidnapped child.

I haven’t thought much about how Jesus paid a ransom.  Yes, He paid with His life.  Yes, it was the ultimate sacrifice, one I can’t even begin to comprehend.

But it wasn’t until tonight as my children were watching the new “The Night Before Easter” Veggie Tales DVD that I really thought about the above verse.

A ransom.  He paid a ransom.

Repeatedly, it traveled through my weary mind.  A ransom.

It wasn’t just the Lindbergh Baby that had a ransom money requirement in exchange for his safe return.

You and me?  We had a ransom out on us, too.

And it’s been paid in full.
