“The devil’s hordes thought, at first, that the crucifixion of Christ was their triumph.
But their very triumphs, God used for their defeat.
They thought they had God with His back to the wall,
pinned and helpless and defeated.
They did not know it was God Himself who had dragged them down to that point.
He did not conquer in spite of the dark mystery of evil,
He conquered through it.”
Scottish Theologian James Stewart
