7:24 AM John Piper has recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Here is his announcement letter to his congregation. This is part of what he wrote:
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.
The entire letter shows how a godly man responds to adversity with faith and joy in the Lord.
