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.

July, 9 - Daily Devotions

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

Psalms 140--143 are prayers for protection. David has a host of enemies that harassed him, but they continually drove him ever closer and closer to God. I think this can be clearly seen in Psalm 140. There is also a promise here that the wicked will ultimately be destroyed. In spite of their prevalence in this life, there is coming a time when judgment will fall.

Psalm 141 is another of David's prayers for protection against being driven to sin. Psalm 142 is one of his prayers in his early life, and Psalm 143 is his penitent cry for help and guidance. This could possibly cover the time when he was being pursued by Absalom.

Note here that although David had sinned, he knew where to go for forgiveness. Too many times when Christians falter they are defeated and never seemingly come back to serving the Lord. When this happens it is a victory for the devil. David was a man after God's own heart, yet he willfully sinned. He was punished for that sin, but the point I want to emphasize here is that David never lost sight of the fact that God was a forgiving God, and in times of trouble he knew where to take his problems.

Psalm 144 is a song of praise. It is one of David's battle songs. It is likely that his army may have chanted such hymns as they moved into conflict. This Psalm is also a prayer for manifestation of the Lord's power. God is praised (verses 1 and 2) and His help sought in the light of man's weaknesses (verses 3 and 4).
