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

Open Bible With Roses


January, 24 - Daily Devotions

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

Chapters 19-24 describe the giving of the Law to the nation of Israel. It is important that we keep in mind that the Mosaic Law was given only to Israel ( Psalm 147:19,20), and that it was set aside at the cross (Colossians 2:14-17; Hebrews 10:1).

According to Numbers 1:1 the nation of Israel spent about a year at Sinai. On the third day of the third month after their deliverance from Egypt, they experienced the terror and wonder of the giving of the Law. Moses was the mediator--he met God on the Mount and delivered God's Word to the people.

Chapters 20-23 give the declaration of the Law. The Ten Commandments are given in chapter 20. The first four commandments give our responsibilities toward God, while the last six give our responsibilities toward man. Nine of the Ten Commandments are repeated in the New Testament for believers today. "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy," does not appear in the New Testament, since the Sabbath was God's special day under the Old Covenant for the Jews, and the Lord's Day is God's special day for the Church under grace.

The entire Law given in Exodus through Deuteronomy is but an amplification and application of these basic commandments. Note that the first nine commandments deal with outward actions, while the tenth, "Thou shalt not covet," deals with inward attitudes.

Covetousness and lust are the cause of much of the corruption in the world today (II Peter 1:4). If only each of us, as Christians, would be willing to say with Paul, "I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need." Paul had learned to be content in whatever state God saw fit that he should encounter.
