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

August, 5 - Daily Devotions

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

Chapter 43 again assures Israel to "Fear not: for I am with thee." Their deliverance would make them witnesses to the world of the grace and power of God. God's grace is sufficient, and His forgiveness is wonderful. Isaiah rebukes the nation for having forgotten God (verses 22-27), yet we again see that by God's grace He would forgive their sin.

In chapters 44 and 45 we see the greatness of God's promise. Note the repeated "I will" statements of these chapters. God is promising the nation His help and blessings. He promises to restore them to their land, to bless their land, and to reign as their King. Of course, the nation must repent of its sin before God can restore and forgive, and in chapter 44 the prophet Isaiah again exposes the folly of the heathen idols. Isaiah says in these verses that Jehovah is a God who makes and keeps His promises, while everything connected with idols is but a lie (verses 18-22).

In chapters 44:24--45:8 we have another promise of deliverance through Cyrus. In chapter 45:17 the historical forgiveness blends in with the eternal forgiveness. It would be an everlasting salvation. Isaiah looks down through the centuries to the salvation we have in Christ (verse 22), as well as to the future deliverance of Israel and the establishing of the Kingdom.
