Something Bigger Than Yourself by Valerie Cheers Brown

A man’s job is to make the world a better place to live in, so far as he is able–always remembering the results will be infinitesimal–and to attend to his own soul. – Leroy Percy

You may ask what does ‘Infinitesimal’ mean?

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary it means: “: extremely small/small difference

Okay, I do agree and straightforward, “Doesn’t mean a damn thing and what is important is yourself, but I honestly do believe that God wants us to do something bigger than yourself by helping others and this is love and God is love and when helping others you are acting out like God would also.”

Question: “In what manner ought to a Christian perspective professionally prescribed medications?”

Many Christians grapple with their choices over tolerating substantial restorative treatments, including the utilization of physician recommended drugs. The Bible does not give us much on this subject, but rather if we look at the motivations behind physician recommended drugs we can exhibit a perfect way to deal with their utilizations in light of scriptural standards.

We know from Scripture that evil wellbeing, sickness, and passing are the consequence of wrongdoing on the planet. Quite a bit of Jesus’ natural service included combatting that revile, as He recuperated individuals all around He went (see Matthew 15:31). Jesus is the careful representation of God’s being (Hebrews 1:3), and by recuperating individuals He demonstrated to us God’s sympathy and His way of life as the Great Physician who will one day reestablish all of creation to wellbeing (Romans 8:18–22).

In this way, it is clear from Jesus’ service that to look for mending or healing is not wrong; indeed, it is correct!

Additionally, Luke, the author of both the Gospel of Luke and Acts, was a doctor (Colossians 4:14). Dr. Luke might not have administered solutions in the way that specialists do today, yet he was in the matter of treating individuals’ physical diseases, utilizing the prescriptions and medicines of his day.

In the prior days physician recommended drugs, individuals looked for alleviation from torment in different ways. Liquor is said in Proverbs 31:6–7 as being given to the critically ill and other people who endure. Likewise, in 1 Timothy 5:23, Paul encourages Timothy to drink a little wine to diminish his stomach disease. Since different medications had not yet been produced, aged beverages were regularly utilized as solutions for torment and enduring, and the utilization of such analgesics is endorsed in God’s Word.

Likewise, we ought to remember that the greater part of today’s professionally prescribed meds depend on components happening normally in creation. A specialist may endorse Amoxil, for instance, however where did that anti-microbial originate from? It originated from a substance delivered by a blue-green mold called Penicillium notatum. Where did the mold originate from? God made it. Thus, we can say that God made the penicillin form and gave it the helpful property of slaughtering irresistible microorganisms. God then permitted individuals to find this property, confine the acting operator, and sanitize it for use in the human body. Is it wrong to utilize God’s own particular creation to enhance the strength of humankind? Not in the least. Truth be told, He is celebrated in such revelations.

Every one of us ought to help us choose how we ought to consider doctor prescribed medications. There is nothing amiss with looking for a specialist’s help when we are debilitated. There is nothing amiss with taking the medications that specialist recommends in the way that they are endorsed.

Are there threats and symptoms connected with physician endorsed drugs? Yes, obviously, and specialists and drug specialists will clarify the dangers. Is it conceivable to manhandle doctor prescribed medications, abuse them, or create undesirable conditions? Yes, and the offspring of God should never permit themselves to be brought under the routine control of a substance (see 1 Corinthians 6:12 for this standard expressed in an alternate setting).

At last, a Christian’s utilization of physician recommended medications is between that Christian and the Lord.

“Faith isn’t a feeling.  It’s a choice to trust God even when the road ahead seems uncertain.”
