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

April, 20 - Daily Devotions

April Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : 1 Samuel 30 - 1 Chronicles 6 including the books of 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, and 2 Kings

Chapter 4 records four miracles of Elisha. The increase of the widow's oil (verses 1-7); the Shunammite woman's son raised from the dead (verses 8-37); the poisonous stew healed (verses 38-41); and the bread multiplied (verses 42-44).

Chapter 5 records the healing of Naaman the leper. In this miracle we have a beautiful picture of salvation through faith in God's Word. Naaman was condemned because he was a leper. He tried to save himself by seeking every possible cure. This is a picture of the condition of the sinner. All men are condemned by sin, and many make the mistake Naaman made of trying to cleanse himself. There is no salvation outside of God and His grace. Ephesians 2:8,9 tells us, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." We see Naaman resisting God's simple plan of salvation by not listening to Elisha. How hard it is even today for some to simply trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for their salvation. They desire to go their own way, but Jesus tells us there is only one way, and that is through Him. He says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

Naaman is finally cured of his leprosy because of his obedient faith. Salvation comes when sinners are obedient, repent of their sin, and place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The promise of God is, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.".
