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

Delicate Arch


April, 13 - Daily Devotions

April Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : 1 Samuel 30 - 1 Chronicles 6 including the books of 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, and 2 Kings

Solomon built the Temple first, and this project took seven years. He then built the king's house and the other structures and courts that made up the Temple area. The entire project took about twenty years to complete.

The New Testament does not give us as much instruction as to the meaning of the Temple as it does the Tabernacle. Some see the Tabernacle as a picture of Christ in His humility on earth, and the Temple as a type of His present ministry in glory, building that "holy Temple" of living stones. Others feel the Tabernacle typifies our pilgrim life today, while the Temple (a permanent building) typifies our glorious reign with Christ when He returns.

It is sad that the Jews trusted the presence of their Temple instead of the promises of the Lord; for in less than 500 years the Temple was destroyed, as the Jews went into captivity for their sins.

Chapter 8 records the dedication of the magnificent Temple. God had filled the Temple with His glory when the Ark was brought in. Solomon addressed the people and reminded them of God's faithfulness to keep His promises. Then he prayed to the Lord on behalf of his family; for those who had sinned; the Gentile strangers; and the exiled nations. The key thought of Solomon's prayer was that God might hear the cries and be merciful to them, in spite of their sins. Solomon realized that the condition of Israel's heart was more important than the presence of the Temple. He knew that sin would bring chastening, but repentance would bring forgiveness and blessing.
