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.

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

The events in today's chapters center around three persons-- Hannah, Eli, and Samuel. God's sovereign working is seen in the birth of Samuel, for his mother, Hannah, was barren. Hannah prayed that God would give her a son, and even before she had conceived she consecrated him to the Lord. God answered Hannah's prayer and Samuel was born. The name Samuel (which means "requested of God") was given to the child as a token of the Lord's faithfulness in answering Hannah's prayer. Samuel was weaned and presented to Eli, the priest, at the central shrine at Shiloh.

The call of Samuel is covered in chapter 3. Tradition states that Samuel was about twelve years old at this time. He had grown up in the presence of the Lord and learned to serve in His Tabernacle, yet he did not have a personal experience with the Lord. How important it is for those who are raised in Christian homes to make their own personal decisions for Christ! Samuel had filled the lampstand with oil; it was close to daybreak and the lamp was about to go out. Samuel was sleeping and the Lord called him. He first thought that blind Eli needed his help, so he ran to him. Verse 10 records Samuel's conversion. He said, "Speak, for thy servant heareth.".

This event was a turning point in history. Up to now, God had not spoken to the people in frequent or widespread (open) visions. But now everyone knew that Samuel was God's prophet and that the Lord was with him. The Lord was now able to appear once again because there was a man whom He could trust. Certainly God could do more for His people even today if He could find a devoted man willing to be His servant!
