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.

August, 14 - Daily Devotions

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

In chapter 12 Jeremiah pleads with God about His judgments. His pleading is in a humble and submissive manner, which God accepts by making him feel the evil of the people more deeply. At the same time, God sustains the prophet's faith by the personal interest He shows in him. God helps him understand that He has not forsaken His inheritance. The state of things was therefore no longer in doubt. God also revealed His purposes and blessings to His people, and even to the nations among whom they will be disbursed, if these nations would learn the ways of the Lord.

In chapter 13 Jeremiah calls the people to repentance because of the coming judgment. Chapter 14 records Sermon 5, presented as "The Drought" and the nation's doom. In this chapter we read of the terrible calamity (verses 1-6); the empty ritualistic prayers of the nation (verses 7-9); and their rejection by the Lord (verses 10-12). The false prophets, who had no divine credentials, were to blame (verses 14-16) and finally, in the latter part of the chapter, we see Jeremiah again lamenting for the nation he loved so well.
