Don't Waste Your Cancer

The wisdom of God never ceases to amaze me! That He would give John Piper cancer is a demonstration of his grace to us all. For who else but Piper could so eloquently use his cancer to encourage and bless us in any affliction we may face? Who else but Piper could so richly use words to call us to meditate upon our passion for God even in the midst of suffering and pain? Who else but Piper could with keen biblical insight point us to the glory and sufficiency of God even in the night of his physical discontent? Who else but Piper could write, Don't Waste Your Cancer? And yet, who else but God could orchestrate our lives with joy and pain, affliction and strength, sorrow and rejoicing to bring His glory and our good. Thank God for John Piper. Thank God for God!

9. You will waste your cancer if you treat sin as casually as before.


Amen! Praise God for the favorable(meaning God was in control) outcome of Pastor John.

Carter thanks for the update.
