“We may finally be winning the battle to turn what was once a deadly diagnosis into a disease that can be controlled and cured.” – AARP Bulletin, March 2016

This AARP edition caught my attention!

The crucial question posed on the magazine cover got my interest, “Are we closing in on a cure?”

When the doctor says, “You have cancer,” three serious questions begin to dominate the way you think:

How long do I have?

Can I live a normal life?

Will I be cured?

At this point, you may be thinking, “Fred, I am reading your daily words for hope. Cancer talk is a downer for me. Bring the hope.”

Good idea. My hope for you today is to proclaim cancer cannot rob anyone of the true essence of life which is to live love. Love is the cornerstone of all virtues.

I absolutely delight in Paul’s letter to the Colossians. In Chapter 1, he declares Jesus is the visible expression of the invisible God.  In Colossians 3, we are told we are chosen, holy, and dearly loved.  Bam! This is great news!

This I know! Every human has cancer. For some it is the cancer of lazy; others bad attitude. Selfishness and self-pity are deadly cancers. Hatred, terrorism and all forms of destroying others is the most lethal of all cancers.

The one true cure for cancer is found at the cross. This is Fred Crowell’s cure for cancer. Dirty, nasty, lying Mr. C may beat my body but it will never, never, ever rob me of the joy of my salvation.
