Doctor’s Orders

When a patient leaves his doctor’s office, he will often be given a written copy of “doctor’s instructions.” Patients are admonished to follow these instructions to the letter. For example, a patient who takes his prescribed medicine, but does not perform his prescribed exercises, may not fully recover.

The Great Physician, however, is even more serious about us following His instructions word for word.

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Matthew 5:18

There are no “unimportant verses” in the Bible. It is our God-inspired instruction manual for spiritual health and daily living.

An earthly physician gives the patient “doctor’s orders” to follow, but the Great Physician gives the COMMANDMENTS to live by in His Holy Word.
