I know we all have heard the phrase “Someone Else did it or I didn’t do it.” Especially from Children.
As Easter approaches and we remember the price that Christ paid for us on Calvary let us all remember the Resurrection. The Resurrection is about New Life. Life is a precious gift and each time there is life brought into the world it is new and fresh. There is also the celebration when New Life comes into our lives.
Growing up I always felt extra loved, and extra special when Easter would fall on my birthday. I did not understand at the time why I felt that way. I do now. Since finding out that I was conceived from rape I have a much greater appreciation for the term “Life.”
Society will tell you that those conceived in rape should be dead. That truly does not make any sense at all. They would love to have us dead because they do not want us speaking the truth.
Babies Conceived from Rape have an automatic death sentence. The sentence is for paying the price for a crime that they did not commit. That has left an impact on me as I could have paid that very same price. I am so grateful for a mother who was not going to let her daughter pay the punishment for a crime she did not commit, but saw her daughter as a gift, and allowed the precious New Life to be a gift to a couple who could not have children.
As I continued to think about it I could have paid for the crime, but I was given life instead. As I continued to think about all of this I thought about someone else in the picture. While I did not commit the crime, I am far from being perfect. I have done wrong, made mistakes, but guess what Someone else who is innocent paid the price for my wrongs, and he paid the price for the man who did the crime. I didn’t have to pay that price.
The someone else is this story is Jesus Christ while yet innocent he paid the price for all of our wrongs. He didn’t let the price that he paid keep him down, but on the 3rd day he arose from the grave and the resurrection of New Life began.
