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

Christians Joining Hands Together


August, 30 - Daily Devotions

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

The Book of Ezekiel is divided into three obvious sections, following the prophet's call in chapters 1--3. (1) God's judgment on Jerusalem (chapters 4--24); (2) God's judgment on the surrounding nations (chapters 25--32); and (3) God's restoration of the Jews in the kingdom (chapters 33--48). Chapters 1--24 were all given before the siege of Jerusalem; chapters 25--32 during the siege; and chapters 33--48 after the siege. Though the prophet was in distant Babylon, he was able to see events in Jerusalem through the power of the Spirit of God.

Ezekiel 's opening message to the exiles, who were hoping for a speedy return to Jerusalem, was a graphic warning that Jerusalem was about to be destroyed; that they would soon be joined by other captives; and that their captivity would last at least 40 years.

As a sign of famine, Ezekiel lived on loathsome bread. Throughout the siege he lay on one side, either continuously or for the greater part of each day, which, with famine diet, meant great discomfort.

When the siege is finished Ezekiel is commanded, as a further symbol of the fate of Jerusalem's inhabitants, to shave off his hair, burn part of it, and scatter the rest of it to the winds.

Chapters 6 and 7 record a sort of dirge over the destruction and desolation of the land of Israel. The main point was that the Jews would, by this terrible punishment, come to know that God is God.
