5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
Day 37. Justin is in remission. There are no leukemia cells found in his blood and bone marrow. Grace overcomes.
We have a long road of “consolidation chemotherapy” and “maintenance chemotherapy” ahead of us. In fact, Justin has to go in early tomorrow for a lumbar puncture and spinal chemotherapy. But I will relay those details later.
For now, please rejoice with us! By grace, we are saved through a faith that overcomes the ugliest of evil in this world.
My friends, your faithful prayers have been heard and answered according to the will of our loving Father. Nothing could be sweeter and I thank you for sharing this moment with me.
We are driving home from a long tedious meeting. The view outside of our car is all grey and blinding rain, but inside it’s just the pure light of Justin’s future coming back into focus. Grace be with you, my friends.
