John Piper is diagnosed with prostrate cancer, but it’s been detected early which means, the chances of a successful treatment are good. What impresses is Piper’s humility and boundless confidence in God’s goodness, come what may. Such a godly response to what is often considered a death sentence is the greater miracle and I praise God for Piper as much as I pray for God’s will to be done.
Excerpts from his cancer announcement read:
Read the rest of his inspiring letter here. No stoic resignation nor desperate appeals for healing.
Here then is where the test of godliness lies: It is not faith in God's power that distinguishes a godly man, but trust in His utter goodness. Now there's a lesson for me.
