THE PHYSICIAN’S TASK

Thursday Devotional

“Do you wish to get well?” (John 5:6).

A latent fear to which I confess is going to the doctor. It’s because I know the visit will never be as simple as receiving treatment for my discomforting symptoms. The examination is always more extensive, comprehensive, and invasive than I would have desired. A good physician is concerned not only with a patient’s current sickness but their overall wellness. What is true of a good physician is nonetheless true of the Great Physician. While the desire for relief and rescue might cause you to turn to him in the painful moments of your life, doing so brings far greater implications. His concern is not only for the pain of the moment but the holistic wellness of our lives.
