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.

June Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Job 12 - Psalm 102

In Psalm 80 Asaph is crying for the restoration of the nation of Israel. In verses 1 and 2 the Lord is called the Shepherd of Israel. He is invoked to restore the chastened and scattered nation. This Psalm is a rehearsal of what will happen in the future when God gathers His children from all the nations and brings them home to Himself. "A nation shall be saved in a day." The regathering of the nation of Israel is as sure as the rapture of the church.

The blowing of trumpets in Psalm 81 foreshadows the regathering of Israel and the answer to the prayer of Psalm 80. Notice in verse 11 why God was not hearing His people. They would not hearken to His voice; thus God "gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.".

Psalm 82 gives us the pre-Kingdom judgment. In this Psalm God takes His place as the supreme and righteous Judge, to judge the nations and to administer justice in contrast to the unjust judges. His right to judge is in the fact that all the nations belong to Him, as He takes possession of the Kingdom.

In Psalm 83 Asaph is praying for God's judgment upon the enemies of Israel. In a time of trouble and stress, he is calling on God to deliver His people. Thanks to God, He is faithful in delivering those who call on His name.

In Psalm 84 the Psalmist is rejoicing as he expresses his love for God and his desire for fellowship with the Lord. For years I have been personally blessed by verse 11 of this Psalm. "For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly." What a gracious and glorious promise we have in this verse. As we abide in Him daily, He is our light and protection. He gives grace and glory, and every good thing we have comes from Him. His only prerequisite for giving good things is that we walk uprightly.
