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

October, 1 - Daily Devotions


October Scripture Portion: Matthew chapter 1 - Luke chapter 22 including the Gospel according to Mark.

Matthew is the first Gospel of the four Gospels and first book of the New Testament (New Covenant). Gospel means 'good news'. Matthew was writing to the Jews and connected the life of Jesus with the predictions throughout the Old Testament.

Abraham was the father of faith and the father of the Israelites. He was the man with whom God covenanted to bless the earth through his seed. David also entered a covenant with God that promised his seed would reign forever.

42 generations passed before the promise to both men came to pass. That is six sets of seven. Six is the number of man, and seven is the number of God. The fulfillment of the promises was going to be the God man, Christ Jesus. The blood of a child is inherited from the father. The life of the flesh is in the blood. Mary was every bit this child's mother, but the Father of this child was God. Jesus was not born with a sin nature, but other than that, his physical being was just like yours and mine.

Joseph thought that Mary had been unfaithful to him during the engagement, and considered a divorce. A dream reassured him that the child was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit. The custom of the time was that father had the responsibility of naming the child, and in this case He did. He told Joseph the babe's name was to be Jesus. Jesus means the salvation of Jehovah. Christ is a title meaning 'anointed one' or 'Messiah'.

Consider: What does it mean to us that He was every bit man?
