What is Christianity?

Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

Devotion Of The Day

Praying Pair Of Hands


August, 28 - Daily Devotions

August Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Isaiah 28 - Ezekiel 11, including the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations

In chapter 3 we see the heart-cry of a chastened people.

In chapter 4 we see the horrors of the siege, and the fall of the city of Jerusalem. Her disaster is described in verses 1-20. The gold and the stone of the Temple had been desecrated.

Chapter 5 records the lament over Judah 's misery under Babylon's heel, and the petition for restoration and divine mercy. Throughout the Book of Lamentations, Jeremiah had been dwelling on his sorrows and the sorrows of the people, but now we see him lifting up his eyes to the Lord. God is always faithful in His mercy, when we as Christians turn away from our sins and turn our eyes to Him. His compassion fails not. Even though we have failed Him, and will fail Him in the future, He cannot fail us.

As the songwriter says, "Great Is Thy Faithfulness." The prerequisite for God's mercy toward us is that we confess our sins. First John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." He is also faithful to deliver us when we cry out for help in temptations (I Corinthians 10:13); He is faithful to keep us in this life and unto eternal life (I Timothy 1:15; I Thessalonians 5:23,24). We desperately need to commit our souls and lives into the hands of our faithful Creator. Then, and only then, will we have a successful Christian life. God was merciful to the remnant of His people, as He is merciful to us today; but the lesson we should learn from the Book of Lamentations is that God is faithful to His Word. Backsliding and sin by God's people will be chastised. "Be sure your sin will find you out" (Numbers 32:23).
