According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, a nurse (registered nurse) provides and coordinates patient care, educates patients and the public about various health conditions, and provides advice and emotional support to patients and their family members. In other words, a nurse is one who dispenses medicines and is a caregiver to those who are sick.
The Bible teaches us that with the stripes of Jesus we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). In other words, Jesus is The Nurse who provides spiritual medicine for the healing of our souls with his stripes. The Bible also advises us to cast all our burdens (worries and cares) on Jesus, for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). Jesus, The Nurse dispenses saving medicine and he cares for us.
Points to ponder:
Jesus gives the medicine to save your soul, unreservedly when you believe in him, and he cares for you, so don’t worry about anything, but give him all your worries and cares. Are you under the care of Jesus The Nurse?
Isaiah 53:4-6 (KJV)
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
