The news consistently reminds us that we are not the captains of our fate.

Evangelist Luis Palau is one of the godliest and most gracious men I have ever met. His sparkling wit and infectious passion for Jesus have attracted millions of people to our Lord.
He has spoken to thirty million people in seventy-five countries across his ministry, authored dozens of books, and been featured in radio broadcasts on 3,500 radio outlets in forty-eight countries. When he preached at the last church I pastored, his message exalted Jesus in a way I will never forget.
Now he has announced that he has Stage 4 lung cancer. “Everything is ready and if the Lord wants to take me home in the next few months or two years or whatever it is, I’m ready,” he said in a video I hope you’ll watch today.
