Healed By THE Light!

Cancer radiation treatment is done with photons. Photons are bundles of energy that we call light, which are always in motion. The first thing God created was photons: let there be light (Genesis 1:3). Depending on the amount of energy a photon has, it will either behave like a wave or a particle. The lowest energy photons are known as radio waves (radio and TVs with antennae use these). Next are cell phone waves (for all our smart phones), then microwaves (for heating food and telecommunications), and finally infrared (for your TV remote). All of these light waves are invisible to the eye. Next in line in energy is visible light. All the colors of the rainbow are just the right balance between photons acting like a wave and a particle. As the energy of the photons increases, they become more like particles and we get ultraviolet rays, those nasty rays that cause sunburn. Next are X-rays; these are most commonly used by doctors to see the inside of our bodies. These are the photons used for radiation treatments but are given at a much higher dosage level. Imagine that: healed by light.  Healed by Jesus, the Light of the World (John 8:12)!
