Wrestling with an Angel: A Story of Love, Disablity and the Lessons of Grace

June 1, 2011

John Knight at Desiring God:

In last week’s sermon on John 9:1-23, John Piper makes this bold statement:

Jesus says that the purpose of the blindness is to put the work of God on display. This means that for our suffering to have ultimate meaning, God must be supremely valuable to us. More valuable than health and life.

But what if the intense suffering is happening to your child? Can God really be more valuable to a parent than a healthy child? Can there possibly be purpose to disability?

Greg and Kim Lucas answer that question for us with a resounding yes! And their deep love for Jesus has given them an ever-increasing capacity to love their son with multiple disabilities.

For more on their story, I highly recommend Greg’s book, Wrestling with an Angel: A Story of Love, Disability and the Lessons of Grace.  It will change how you think about disability, God, and the reality of his infinite grace.
