Bible Study

Biblical and theological literacy

from silence to HopeWe acknowledge the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross on Good Friday. Then we celebrate with joy his resurrected life on Easter Sunday. But what do we do on Saturday?

newbornAfter my first year of college I worked as a nursing assistant on a postpartum unit. I had a two-week orientation and then off I went to help the new mothers. I’m not sure how much help I was at first because I had much to learn.

I love my job as the director of NCF Student Ministries, but last spring I was approaching burn-out. It had been a great year of ministry with nursing students, but I knew I needed a break. My sabbatical in May arrived just in time!

FireHow do we begin to understand God’s holiness? According to A.W. Tozer, we are the total opposite of holy; we are vile.

What's Vital?If you’re looking for Bible studies relevant to nursing, try What's Vital? Following Jesus in Nursing. The topics integrate faith, nursing and spiritual care.

Years ago my daughter had a computer game called “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”  It tested our knowledge of geography, the locations of natural and man-made wonders, and a lot of world trivia. We loved it, but we didn’t get many answers right!

CompassionThere is a lot of talk in my country about compassion, particularly in relation to nursing – and why people today are seeing a lack of compassion in the profession.

Grace flows from God's goodnessGrace, like mercy, flows from God’s goodness. But they are not the same.

According to A. W. Tozer, “mercy is God’s goodness confronting human guilt, whereas grace is God’s goodness confronting human demerit (unworthiness, very poor quality).”

The Lord is mercifulDid you know that the word mercy appears in the Old Testament four times more often than it does in the New Testament? What a surprise for those who believe that the Old Testament is full of wrath and judgment!
