What seemed to be defeat was actually victory

Imagine, for a moment, the reaction of Hell to the death of Christ.  Jesus was bound with the bands of death.  What celebration and joy!  God was defeated!  Vengeance was the Devil’s.  But they reckoned without the wisdom of God.  For Christ could not be held down by the bands of death.  In fact through death He was paralyzing the one who had the power of death, and He was setting His people free (Heb. 2:14-15).  What seemed to be defeat was actually victory.  The Resurrection morning was Hell’s gloomiest day.  Satan saw the wisdom of God and tasted defeat. –Sinclair Ferguson

  1. What a great example for us! In our apparently weakest moments, there is the potential for the Lord to do His greatest good.
