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

Praying Pair Of Hands


July, 29 - Daily Devotions

July Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Psalms 103 - Isaiah 27 including the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs

Verses 12-14 of chapter 14 mark the beginning of sin in the universe. Lucifer was once in heaven, and called the son of the morning. Sin began when he said, "I will be like the most High." He was not happy in the position God had placed him, and wanted to be the Supreme Being himself. As a result, Satan was cast out of heaven. Today, he is the prince of the power of the air, and ruler of the world. In verses 12-17 he is actually addressed as the organizer of Babylon's last king. He is very closely associated with Babylon's last ruler, whose coming is after the working of Satan, with all power and signs and deceiving wonders. His final destiny is recorded in verse 15, "Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.".

Verses 18-27 contain the prophecy of the future destruction of the Satanic world system. These verses go beyond the destruction of little Babylon and encompass the whole earth (verse 26). All this destruction of Satanic rule is in preparation for God's order and the Kingdom, which is guaranteed by God's purpose (verse 27).

Today's reading also covers the judgment upon Moab. Moab was to be pitilessly desolated (chapters 15:1--16:9). Her arrogance and pride would be humbled by terrible devastation from Assyria (chapter 16:10-14).

In chapter 17 we see the judgment upon Damascus and Samarial. Damascus and Ephraim (the Northern Kingdom) would be desolated (verses 1-3), but eventually Samarial would yield a remnant of true believers who would not follow idolatry. Chastening, however, must precede blessings, and in verses 12-14 the Assyrian invasion is predicted.

Chapter 18 records the judgment upon Ethiopia. The prophet apprises Ethiopian ambassadors that the birds of prey would feed upon their corpses rotting on the battlefield. Ethiopia and her powerful king had sway over all Egypt at that time. This chapter is not a prophecy of doom. Rather, it seems to refer to the excitement and call to arms among the Ethiopians at the advance of Sennacherib's army into Judah , whose fall would leave the gateway open for the Assyrian march into Egypt (verses 1-3). In verses 4-6 we see the miraculous deliverance of Jerusalem.
