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


March, 21 - Daily Devotions

March Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary Deuteronomy 25 - 1 Samuel 29 including the books of Book of Joshua, Judges and Ruth

Today's chapters relate three great events in the history of Israel. First, we see that God's glory is departed, as chapter 4:1-5 records the great sin of the people; verses 6-10, the great slaughter; and verses 11-22, the great sorrow.

Second, we see that God's name is defended in chapters 5 and 6. God will not reveal His power on behalf of His sinning people, but He will not allow His glory to be mocked or His name to be defied.

The Lords of the Philistines added the Ark to the heathen temple, and put Jehovah on the same level as their fish-God, Dagon. Jehovah proved Dagon to be a false God and vindicated His name. The Ark was then moved from Ashdod to Ekron, but the citizens then begged to have it removed. Once again, God had defended His name.

It was decided to return the Ark to Israel; but nobody dared to undertake the task. They finally decided to put the Ark on a new cart and allow the cows to walk down the road unassisted. It would be natural for the cows to seek out their calves; but, if they headed for Beth-shemesh instead, it would be evidence the God was directing them. God did direct the cows and they brought the cart to the field of Joshua. The Israelites in the harvest field rejoiced to see the Ark returned. However, they became curious, looked into the Ark, and God had to judge them.

Third, in chapter 7, God's people are delivered. The Ark was not returned to Shiloh; it remained at the house of Abinadad for twenty years. What was God doing during this time? He was preparing His servant Samuel to defeat the enemy and reestablish the kingdom. No doubt Samuel was ministering to the people from place to place, giving them the Word of God. Verse 3 indicates that Samuel called the people to repent and return to the Lord. This meant putting away the Gods of the heathen, and then preparing their heart to serve the Lord. How tragic that the great nation of Israel had fallen into defeat and disrepute because of their sins! Had Eli been a faithful father and his sons faithful priests, this defeat would never have occurred.
