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.

March Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary Deuteronomy 25 - 1 Samuel 29 including the books of Book of Joshua, Judges and Ruth

Chapters 8--15 cover the early life of Saul and the sins that led to his rejection by the Lord. Specifically today's reading covers the request for a king.

Jehovah God had been King of Israel and had cared for the nation since its beginning; but now the elders of the nation wanted a king to lead them. Their request was motivated by several factors: (1) Samuel's sons were not as Godly as he, and the elders feared that they would lead the nation astray when Samuel died; (2) The nation had been through a series of temporary leaders during the period of the judges, and they wanted a more permanent ruler; (3) Israel wanted to be like the other nations and have a king to honor. Samuel's reaction to their request shows that he fully understood their unbelief and rebellion. They were rejecting Jehovah in wanting a king. In choosing Saul the nation rejected the Father; in choosing Barabbas they rejected the Son; and when they chose their own leaders instead of the witness of the apostles, they rejected the Holy Spirit.

Chapter 9 explains how Saul was brought to Samuel and privately anointed for the kingship. Note his humility in verse 21, and also in chapter 10:22, when he hesitated to stand before the people. God gave Saul three special signs to assure him and these signs occurred. Samuel also instructed Saul to tarry at Gilgal and wait for him to come.

Saul had everything in his favor. He had a strong body, a humble mind, a new heart, spiritual power, loyal friends, and most of all the guidance and prayers of Samuel. Yet, in spite of these advantages, he failed miserably because he failed to allow God to be the Lord of his life.
