We need the truth of the Bible in order to see, interpret, and understand our world clearly. This is true about every walk of life from how we spend our money, to how we educate our children, or to what we eat. But when it comes to something like cancer, developing a biblical worldview is especially urgent. Cancer threatens us. It can take our life or the life of our loved one. If it doesn’t kill us, it might very well cause us great suffering.

One thing Willard said was that cancer is so limited.
Now, we tend to think of cancer as this huge, insurmountable monster. In some ways, that’s very true. Many of us here have lost someone to this terrible disease. It’s a word that can strike fear into almost anyone. But with a Holy Spirit perspective, we can realize that this insurmountable monster, this incredibly difficult disease that mankind has been unable to conquer, is really very limited in what it can do to us as children of the living God.
it cannot shatter hope,
it can’t corrode faith
It can’t eat away peace,
It can’t destroy confidence
It cannot kill friendship
it can’t shut out memories
it cannot silence courage
it cannot invade the soul
It can’t reduce eternal life
It cannot quench the spirit
and finally, it cannot lessen the power of the resurrection.
