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.

June Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Job 12 - Psalm 102

In chapter 29 Job recalls the days when he walked through the uncertain paths of life with the confidence that no serious ill could harm him because the Lord was with him. It would seem from some of these statements that Job had almost forgotten about the Lord's sovereign and unchangeable care.

Job's circumstances had probably begun to affect him mentally as well as physically. He says, "And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me." This refers to the fact that day and night his mind was greatly disturbed by his calamities. His physical pain was continuous; there was no relief either in the night or in the day. As Job says, "My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest." It is quote obvious that Job found it most difficult to sleep because of his extreme suffering.

We must not be too critical of Job, for, if we were in similar circumstances, we would probably act in the same manner. It seems that Job's besetting sin here was that of unbelief! He had earlier declared, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him." He now seems to have lost his confidence in God. Is this not often the case in our lives? Though our trials might not be as severe as Job's, even in circumstances less severe we have failed to trust the Lord as we should.

In Job's speeches he has argued for his integrity. First of all, on the grounds that he refrained from sin by guarding his eyes; secondly, by the fact that he did not oppress the poor and needy; and thirdly, that he has not trusted in money. He says, "If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence; If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much." Job was not guilty of the sin of covetousness.

Today's reading closes with the statement, "The words of Job are ended." This does not mean that Job does not speak again in the remaining chapters, but rather that he has nothing further to say to his three friends about these matters. He has offered them his concluding argument. He has nothing more to say by way of self defense and vindication. If what he has said does not suffice, he chooses to keep silent.
