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

January, 18 - Daily Devotions

January Scripture Portion: Genesis 1 - Leviticus 3 including the book of Exodus.

We now begin the story of Moses. There is no reason to doubt that he wrote the Book of Exodus. The unity of the book shows there was only one author; and the eyewitness accounts indicate that the author was present. Christ affirmed the Mosaic authorship of the book in John 5:46,47 and 7:19.

"Exodus" means "the way out" in the Greek language. This book describes Israel's bondage in Egypt and the wonderful way out God gave them.

The key Word in Exodus is "redemption," since "to redeem" means "to set free." The entire book is filled with pictures of our salvation through Christ.

While Genesis is the book of beginnings, Exodus is the book of redemption. In chapter 1 we see the persecution of God's people. We also see a new generation, a new king, and a new strategy! The king's plan to kill all the male babies would have met with great success if God had not intervened. God uses the weak things of this world to defeat the mighty! He used the midwives to confound the king, just as He later used a baby's cry to reach the heart of Pharaoh's daughter.

The story of Moses should be an encouragement to every believer. No matter how weak you are, no matter how small your talent, God can use you, if you are willing to commit your life to Him and allow Him to work through you. Truly the song writer was correct when he wrote, "Little is much when God is in it."
