For those who were praying for John Piper's cancer and surgery, there is an update on his website and it was very successful. He also wrote an amazing article on "Don't Waste Your Cancer", looking at the sovereignty of God in all situations, even in cancer. He wrote it the night before his surgery ... a great read! Follow the link and let your faith be fed ... and may Christ be exalted in our life ... and in our death.
A brief sample ...
Christians are never anywhere by divine accident. There are reasons for why we wind up where we do. Consider what Jesus said about painful, unplanned circumstances: “They will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake. This will be your opportunity to bear witness” (Luke 21:12 -13). So it is with cancer. This will be an opportunity to bear witness. Christ is infinitely worthy. Here is a golden opportunity to show that he is worth more than life. Don’t waste it. (italics mine)
