Some of you may already know, but John Piper of Desiring God Ministries recently announced that he has prostate cancer. His God-honoring perspective on it is refreshing. Go ahead and check out the article.
And in case you haven’t already been convinced to read it, here’s just a taste for you:
This news has, of course, been good for me. The most dangerous thing in the world is the sin of self-reliance and the stupor of worldliness. The news of cancer has a wonderfully blasting effect on both. I thank God for that. The times with Christ in these days have been unusually sweet.
Now that’s a man with the right perspective. His prayer requests at the end of the announcement are also particularly moving. So honestly, read it – you’ll be glad you did.
