Daniel Overdorf: I visited a friend in the hospital. He had neared the end of an extended battle with cancer. The chemotherapy had taken most of his ability to think. I read some Scripture passages to him about God's promises, unsure if he even heard me, then I prayed. As I turned to leave the room, he mumbled, "How do I know He'll keep His Word?" After overcoming my amazement, I gathered my thoughts and said, "He guaranteed it with a cross and a covenant."
