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

Christian Family


January, 22 - Daily Devotions

January Scripture Portion: Genesis 1 - Leviticus 3 including the book of Exodus.

The Passover clearly illustrates salvation through the blood of the Lamb, but there is more to the Christian life than being saved. God was leading His people by His own special methods--a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. This is proof that God always makes His way clear to those who are willing to follow Him.

Israel's experiences in their journey from Egypt to Canaan are pictures of the battles and blessings of the Christian life. God wanted Israel in Canaan, and Canaan is a picture of the victorious Christian life, the life of claiming our inheritance in Christ. Too many Christians, like the Jews of old, are delivered from Egypt, but they get lost in the wilderness of unbelief and never reach the promised victorious life.

Chapters 14 and 15 record times of unbelief in the lives of the children of Israel. They were praising the Lord when things were going well, but began to murmur and complain when even the smallest troubles came.

Most Christians today operate in the same fashion as the Jews of old. Practically all our problems come because we get our eyes off the Lord and on men. The joy and victory of our Christian life ceases when we begin walking in the flesh rather than in the Spirit. It is then that the temptations of Satan look more attractive.

Finally, in today's reading, the manna from heaven is a type of Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life. It also illustrates the written Word of God on which God's pilgrim people feed from day to day.
