BIBLE PASSAGE: Luke 10:30-35 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 12 January 2020)

30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

INTRODUCTION:

Healthcare is the maintenance or improvement of health via the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, illness, injury and other physical/mental impairments in human beings. The Bible is definitely pro-health and encourages us to take care of ourselves when we are sick. Proper attention should be given to any ailing parts of our bodies (Isaiah 1:5-6). The goal is to keep the body fit, as much as possible, in order to fulfil the purpose of living, serve and glorify the Lord (Isaiah 38:19).

OUTLINES

  1. Biblical clue
  2. The right approach

BIBLICAL CLUE

Seeking medical attention should not be viewed as demonic, lack of faith or carnal. Rather, there are scriptural proscriptions as well as contemporary medical interventions that do not just bring about quick relief but also saves lives (Isaiah 38:21). Ultimately, God heals (Exodus 15:26).

The Bible mention various medical processes/ treatments. For instance, people applied bandage and ointments to wound (Isaiah 1:6), Used oil and wine as healing agents (James 5:14; Luke 10:34; 1Timothy 5:23). This does not mean that modern surgery or pharmaceuticals are unbiblical, only that, when Bible was written, those treatments had not yet been invented (Daniel 12:4; Isaiah 33:6).

THE RIGHT APPROACH

There are several provisions at our disposal to improve or correct our health. Preventive healthy habits such as eating and sleeping well, drinking enough water, and doing regular exercises will steadily improve any person’s health. Christians should not hesitate to visit or consult with the approximate medical practitioners, when the need arises. We should however, avoid patronizing quarks, magicians or witchdoctors (Leviticus 19:31; Deuteronomy 18:10). Maternal healthcare is essential for pregnant women. Immunization of children against strange diseases/epidemics should not be taking for granted. It is also good to participate in healthcare insurance plan.

However, our ultimate faith and trust should be in God and not in the medical experts or medicine (Mark 5:25-26). All medical processes/treatments should be committed unto God before, during and after.

Physicians care, God heals ( Psalm 103:3; Psalm 7:20).

CONCLUSION
If we lack wisdom and let our bodies fall into disrepair, we risk sudden sickness or injury that can take us out of God’s purpose for living.
