It is a well-known fact that those in the medical field are in high demand because sickness is inevitable. As humans, we need to seek professional healthcare when we feel that something is wrong with our bodies, as not all of us are able to prescribe ourselves proper treatments or procedures. Since science is a very broad and technical subject, most in the medical field have excelled well in their studies. In turn, the lives of individuals sometimes depend on these professionals. Because there are so many kinds of illnesses and diseases, there is also a wide range of scientific cures and medication. In order for a medical professional to identify the sickness and pinpoint the correct remedy, he/she must possess the right values.
There have been several instances wherein doctors ask patients to line up for many hours and some are not even given the chance to receive a consultation due to time constraints. This is understandable, but there is a way to undergo the process in a more efficient manner. Moreover, many patients have been misdiagnosed and given the wrong treatment. A person who loves to do good work would do his/her best to treat patients with speed and accuracy.
People of faith already have the drive to do good work with all their hearts, minds, and souls. This makes it a perfect foundation to be able to save the lives of others. They are selfless, loving, and caring because they believe that their work is all done in the Glory of God. John Hagee once said, “The measure of a man’s greatness is not the number of servants he has, but the number of people he serves.” Therefore, those who do their medical work in faith, have a more profound impact on the lives of others because it’s not just because of their expertise, but also their willingness to help those in need.
Let us look at this in a hypothetical situation. John was a poor man who was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. The doctor told him that he only had a few months to live unless he underwent chemotherapy which cost $30,000. John could not afford any treatment and begged the doctor to reconsider. Since the doctor had many other patients, he told John to decide for himself whether he will receive treatment or not. John felt lost and did not know what to do. He expressed his concern to his friends. One of his friends asked him to go see a doctor that he knew. This doctor was a Christian and had a really close relationship with God. When John visited his clinic and told him about his dilemma, the doctor prayed to God and asked the Lord to give him strength in order to be of benefit to the patient. After diagnosing John again, it was discovered that he only had a small tumor that could easily be removed through surgery which was much cheaper than chemotherapy. Even though there were endless patients who needed to be treated, the doctor had to carefully analyze John’s illness because the doctor believed that each person matters. It doesn’t matter what social class you are in, where you come from or what the color of your skin is. Bottomline, a person is a person. From dust, we came and to dust we shall return. As you can see, because the doctor’s faith in the Lord was so strong, he helped change the life of a single person and all others before and after John. Not only do people of faith put all their efforts into their work, but because they truly believe, they can make miracles happen.
It is honestly hard to believe what faith can really do. You are not only mentally strong but the verses and biblical stories that grounded our faith are shared. A recurring theme of the book, No Other Name, is that faith is not a frenzied emotion without intellectual moorings to ground it. Faith is relational, not a substance that is injected into the bloodstream or dropped out of heaven through some spiritual IV. Faith and trust find their anchor in the character and integrity of God, nurtured by the conduit of God’s Word in the context of an interpersonal relationship with Him.
Jesus is known and believed by many to be a prophet; for instance, He is mentioned 72 times in the Koran. We have found that from the moment of our conception in the womb, God has a specific plan for each one’s life — a plan that cannot be fully realized until Jesus transforms us for the journey each has been designed to live. We can trust Jesus.
