"Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come and has redeemed his people" (Luke 1:68 NIV). A little child plays innocently in a park. Suddenly a man grabs her from behind and drags her into a van. She’s gagged. A bag’s pulled over her head. Dust stings her eyes. The smell of sweat and cigarette smoke twitch her nose. The tightening ropes cut into her wrist. Fear overwhelms her. What will happen to her? Will she ever see Mommy or Daddy again? How horrible that cold, dark night, alone and terrified! But the next morning, when those van doors open, her tears turn to joy. There stands Mom and Dad, ready to take her home. She’s free! Why? Because the ransom had been paid. "He has come and has redeemed his people" (Luke 1:68 NIV). He has redeemed you, dear friend. His blood ransoms you. Praise to the Lord, our God!
