Do we need a doctor?

Posted by on August 19, 2011

I love this clip from Patch Adams.  Not because i want to be a doctor, but because it speaks to me about being a Christ follower.  In the clip, replace Doctor with Christian and see what you get from it.

Sometimes church seems like a club, and those who are saved get the “insider” mentality.  Jesus came not to help the healthy, but to help the sick.  He lived an extraordinary life and called me to follow his example.  I am not privileged but called to serve.  We can’t treat the sickness (sin) only the people and the best way to do this is kindness and friendship.  Have we as Christ followers lost this calling on our profession?  Or are we living it out in a way that impacts those around us?

Like it!
