For Valentine’s Day, it seems appropriate to feature Siloam’s core value on Love.
“Sharing the love of Jesus is an intentional process which begins with the Siloam board and staff knowing and experiencing Christ’s love themselves. As a medical center dedicated to sharing this love in a variety of ways, we have a constant need for the grace and truth of the gospel to overflow from our lives to others. As God pours out this love through us, it is vitally important to attribute it to the original source–the sacrificing love of Jesus as God in the flesh, and not just the goodness of our own human hearts. “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:10, Bible). Consider how Jesus approached the healing of the blind man at the pool of Siloam in John chapter 9. The man was physically healed by the touch of Jesus, but Jesus did not stop there. Jesus pursued the more complete healing of the man by revealing to the man who He really was—the Messiah. It is our hope that Siloam patients will, in due time, both experience God’s love through our care and grow to know the Great Physician who provides it!”
