My Doctrine on Nursing is Love

My Doctrine on Nursing is Love The intent of this document is to describe my own personal philosophy of nursing. My personal philosophy of nursing proceeds forth from my faith in Christ Jesus. God is love and Jesus is the image of the invisible God making Him the personification of love. He said to love one another even as I have loved you; God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. So, therefore, my personal philosophy of nursing is love. To love one’s client as you love yourself should dictate all that we do as nurses in practice. So I ask myself with regards to my clients; if I was in this situation, or my family member was, how would I want to be treated and talked to? What information would I want to be given? This should not be based on reciprocal love, but a denying of oneself for that period of time in which we care for the client, his or her family members, and others on the health care team.

Teach in The Name of Jesus

It is my belief that many have the wrong idea about open-air preaching. The idea is not to beat up the people in the world, but to teach them about Jesus, who He is and what He has done. The apostles Peter and John were told by the angel who released them from prison; “’Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.’ Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple about daybreak and began to teach.” (Acts.5.20-21) The best open-air preachers are not those with a mind set to beat up the people in the world, but are teachers with the desire to educate. For one is saved solely as a gift by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus. C.H. Spurgeon said faith has three parts: Knowledge, belief, and trust. So, therefore, faith begins with knowledge and that is what God has given us to do; to give knowledge. “How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will the

The Lord's Choice

I have suggested before in a previous blog that you and I are not the witnesses for Christ Jesus, His chosen Apostles are His witnesses, and still are through the New Testament, which they have left for us ,“ Who Are the Witnesses of Christ Jesus? ”. Today I would like to tell you my thoughts as I read through part of Acts this morning. In Acts 1 the eleven Apostles, prior to the day of Pentecost, were talking about Judas; the one who betrayed the Lord. They had decided to cast lots between two men; Joseph and Matthias. They knew from scripture that Judas was to be replaced, so they had decided between themselves to cast lots for these two men and prayed that the Lord would decide which one of them He wanted to be the replacement for Judas as one of the twelve Apostles. I see this as men trying by their own effort to affect the things of God. The Apostles were chosen by the Lord Himself, He did not need any suggestions from man; the Apostles are His chosen witnesses into t
