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

Christian Men Walking Together

August, 12 - Daily Devotions

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

Chapters 1--20 of the Book of Jeremiah contain what is often called Sermons. Sermon 1 could be called "Sin of the Nation" (chapters 2:1--3:5); Sermon 2 is known as "Devastation from the North" (chapters 3:6--6:30); and today we read Sermon 3, "Threat of Exile" (chapters 7--10). This message, like the two preceding ones, was a stern rebuke, warning and exhortation, but centered in the religious conditions in Judah.

It might also be interesting to note here that the very same year in which Jeremiah was called, immense swarms of Barbarians from the north struck terror to the nations of southwest Asia. They dealt a terrific blow to the tottering Assyrian power. On they came, like a flight of locusts--countless, irresistible, finding the land before them like a garden, leaving behind them a howling wilderness. Neither age nor sex would be spared. Inhabitants would be ruthlessly massacred by the invaders or, at best, forced to become slaves. The crops would be consumed, herds swept off or destroyed, the villages or homesteads burned, and the whole country made a scene of desolation.

Chapter 7 records Jeremiah's heart-rendering appeals for repentance, but again we see the people refusing to heed his warnings. Even though Jeremiah was trying to give the nation the only remedy for their sin, they rejected and even hated him for his message.

The first part of chapter 8 contains further warnings of judgment against the nation of Israel. All classes of God's people were corrupted, with the prophets and priests as bad as the rest of the people. Jeremiah's heart was broken and, in chapter 9, he is again weeping over the nation of Israel.
