As ministers, we represent to a patient God’s presence, the love of God, His healing power, and community support. Our presence can also precipitate a sense of guilt and a need to confess. In light of this, there is a need to emphasize to the patient the truth of God’s Word, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). Also, “A cheerful heart doeth good like medicine” (Proverbs 17:22)
In the medical field, there is a growing recognition that any breakdown of health in any area, physical, mental or spiritual, affects the overall health in the other areas. Consequently, one of the major issues to be addressed is whether or not our patient is reconciled on all levels.
