Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has said that she has “no fear of death” as she begins chemotherapy in her fight against cancer.
“My cancer journey continues as I begin chemotherapy this week. My heart aches for the multitude of people who have also dealt with this deadly disease. Yet I am praising God for His keeping power and for your prayers that I know are sustaining me in a constant state of peace, joy, and expectancy of blessings along the way,” Lotz wrote on her website on Tuesday.
“I have been told that my prognosis is excellent. But to be honest, even if it wasn’t, I can truthfully say I have no fear of death. None at all,” she added.
“My perspective is the same as the Apostle Paul when he declared, For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21) As my brother-in-law, Dr. Denton Lotz, stated when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the same time I was diagnosed with breast cancer, we are in a win-win situation.”
As inspiration for her state of mind she shared Hebrews 2:14–15, which also talks about not fearing death.
“Since the children have flesh and blood, He (Jesus) too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil — and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death,” the passage reads.
Lotz was diagnosed with breast cancer in August.
