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

August, 18 - Daily Devotions

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

Chapter 26 records Jeremiah's trial before the princes. His accusers were the priests and false prophets. But Jeremiah had friends among the princes, especially one named Ahikam, who saved him from death. The threat against Jeremiah's life was due to his having predicted that the Temple would be destroyed. All classes of people rejected the truth and persecuted the prophet. Verses 12-24 record Jeremiah's brave defense and deliverance.

In chapters 27 and 28 Jeremiah actually put a yoke, like those worn by oxen, on his neck for an illustration to the people. He then went about the city saying that thus shall Babylon put a yoke on the necks of this people. One of the false prophets, Hananiah, broke the yoke (chapter 28:10) and as a punishment died within two months (verse 17).

In chapter 29 Jeremiah writes a letter of comfort to the exiles. It was written after Jehoiachin, and the best of the people, had been taken to Babylon. He advised them to be peaceful and obedient captives, and promised them a return to their homeland after 70 years (verse 10). But even in Babylon the false prophets kept up their fight against Jeremiah.

The devil never stops working--he is working day and night to accomplish that confusion that brings forth the deterioration of a home, nation, or anything else. The devil knows well that a house divided against itself cannot stand, and a nation divided against itself will surely crumble. Thus the false prophets, even in captivity, continued their fight against Jeremiah.
