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

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

Chapter 21 records the reign of Manasseh. Historians have calculated that Manasseh ruled jointly with Godly Hezekiah for at least ten years. How strange that Godly Hezekiah should reign but 29 years, while unGodly Manasseh reigned 55 years. But God was giving His people just what they wanted and deserved. No sooner was Hezekiah off the scene than Manasseh's true character was revealed. He built up what Hezekiah tore down and tore down what Hezekiah had built up. Manasseh even carried his idolatry right into the courts of the Temple. He rebelled against his Godly father's example and against the law of the Lord.

Verses 10-15 record the removal of Manasseh. He was captured by the Assyrian captains and taken to Babylon. He later repented of his sins and when he was restored to the throne he immediately began to repair the damage he had done. He fortified Jerusalem against the enemy; he removed the idols and the strange altars; and he sought to lead the nation back to the Lord. Following the death of Manasseh, his son Amon reigned as king for two years. He was also a wicked king, and was slain in a conspiracy and buried near his father.

The assassination of Amon brought Josiah to the throne at the young age of eight years. Because of Godly influence in his early life, Josiah began to seek the Lord at age 16. Then, at age twenty, he began to purify the city and the land of the idolatry of Manasseh and Amon. Josiah's ultimate goal was to restore the Temple and bring the nation back to the Lord, but he knew that he would have to destroy the old sins before he could establish new obedience.

During Josiah's day there was peace and blessing, but God did not withdraw His original promise of judgment because of the sins of Manasseh. Josiah, the king who attempted to restore the nation of Israel back to God, was assassinated and will best be remembered as a king who wanted his people to know that they had been "bought with a price.".
