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.

Again in today's reading Solomon emphasizes the tongue. In chapter 21:23 we read, "Whoso keepeth his mouth keepeth his soul from troubles." All too often the tongue gets us into trouble!

It has been said that God wants the Christian to live in such a manner that he would not be afraid to sell his talking parrot to the town gossip! How often we bring unnecessary trouble down upon our heads because of what we say. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and prove it!

Peter often experienced the displeasure of the Lord because of his thoughtless words. On one occasion he took Jesus aside and began to rebuke Him because the Saviour had foretold of His soon suffering and death. In the midst of this rebuke, Jesus suddenly turned and said, "Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offense unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men" (Matthew 16:23). In the very next chapter, Peter sins again by wanting to build three Tabernacles: one for Jesus, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. In the Upper Room (John 13) Peter blurted out his refusal to allow Christ to wash his feet. Then, beside an early morning fire, Peter denied the Saviour three times. May David's prayer become our prayer: "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer" ( Psalm 19:14).

When we speak, we should be sure that we speak the truth, with kindness, and that what we speak is needful to be said. If we examine our words carefully in relation to truth, kindness, and need, then truly God has control of our tongue.
