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

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

The theme of Psalms 36 and 37 is "trust in God." In Psalm 36, what the wicked man is and does is contrasted with what the Lord is and does. The Lord is to be petitioned and trusted.

Psalm 37 is one of the best-loved of all the Psalms. Verse 4 is one of my key verses in the Old Testament. "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart." This Psalm tells of God's provision for His children. He also promises us His protection and His peace. He tells us that He will give us the desires of our heart if we will delight ourselves in Him. When I first read that verse many years ago I could not believe it could be true. Could God possibly give me the desires of my heart? The answer is--YES! If I meet His conditions; if I delight myself in Him. The Word "delight" means "to fall in love with." If I am willing to fall in love with the Lord Jesus, and abandon my will to His will in every matter; there is no end to the desires He will give me.

David always seems to be puzzled by the prevalence of wickedness; and in Psalm 37 he gives his philosophy as to how to live in the midst of wicked people--do good, trust God, and don't worry!

Psalm 38 is a Psalm of bitter anguish, another of the Penitential Psalms. David seemed to be suffering from some loathsome disease, caused by his sin. Because of it, his closest friends and nearest relatives had become estranged, and enemies had multiplied and become very bold. This Psalm shows how the "man after God's own heart" sometimes went to the depths in sorrow and humiliation for his sin.
