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

February, 22 - Daily Devotions

February Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Leviticus 4 - Deuteronomy 24 including the book of Numbers

Moses had reminded the people of God's guidance in chapters 1-3. It had taken the people forty years to get to the Plains of Moab, yet chapter 1:2 states that it was only an eleven day journey. This is the tragedy of unbelief. It wastes time, energy, and manpower, and it robs God of the glory due His precious name.

In chapters 4 and 5 Moses reminds the people of God's glory and greatness. In this section, Moses takes the nation back to Sinai where God's glory and greatness were revealed, and where the nation trembled at God's law. They were in danger of forgetting the glory and greatness of God.

Moses points out three dangers that can also be applies to our lives today. First, he warns them against forgetting God's Word. If they obeyed His Word, He would bless them and they would possess the land. However, if they changed His Word, or disobeyed it, He would chasten them and they would lose their land. When God's Word becomes commonplace to the Christian, and he no longer respects it, he is headed for serious trouble.

Moses also tells the people to take heed against turning to idols. He reminds them that God had proved Himself greater than all the Gods of Egypt. If they turned from God to idols, they would be chastised again.

In chapter 5 Moses warns the people against neglecting the law. He repeats the Ten Commandments, the basis for God's moral law. In fact, the remainder of Deuteronomy is actually an amplification and application of these commandments. Israel was to hear, learn, keep, and do these laws, for in obeying the law they would be honoring God and opening the way for victory and blessing.

Finally, in chapter 6, Moses reminds the people of God's goodness. Verses 10-12 illustrate a basic weakness of human nature--we take God's blessings for granted. How prone we are, as were the children of Israel, to think that our wisdom and strength have gotten us where we are today. Satan would puff us up and have us believe we are something within our own strength.

God's warning against such temptation is found in I Corinthians 10:12: "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." Never let Satan get you to the place where you are depending on self- ingenuity, self-will, and self-motivation to carry you through this wicked life. Only through daily prayer, Bible reading, and total dependence upon God can any Christian anywhere be successful for God.
