You are probably familiar with the passage in Genesis where Joseph states to his brothers that what they “meant for evil, God meant for good.” God’s “meaning” always stands behinds man’s ”meaning.” This is a constant theme in the drama of Scripture, finding its apex in the cross/resurrection event. Acts 2:23-24 states that “this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.” What man meant for evil, God meant for great good. It was not possible for death to hold Christ because their was a greater “plan” behind man’s intentions.
The "good" you experience today (Rom 8:28) and will experience tomorrow is found in that moment in history where what man meant for evil, God meant for great good, and His glory, by absorbing the very intended evil on the God-man, Jesus Christ. The irony of Easter is the irony of life- your life.
