Candy Cane, Symbol of Christmas

December 6, 2019

In Indiana, a candy maker wanted to make a candy that could be a reminder of Jesus Christ, so he made the Christmas candy cane. He started off with a stick of pure white hard candy. The white color symbolized the virgin birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and the hard candy symbolized the solid rock which was the foundation of the church, and firmness of the promises of God.

The candy maker made the candy in the form of a J, which represented the name of Jesus and the staff of the Good Shepherds. He then stained it with three stripes which showed the scourging Jesus received, and symbolized the blood shed by Christ on the cross. When you break the cane, it reminds us that Jesus’ body was broken for us.

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Prayer

September 19, 2019

Billy Graham said, “Prayer is simply a two-way conversation between you and God.”

How often do we have a conversation with God? His desire is to have fellowship with us. What a blessing to be able to talk to The Creator anywhere, anyplace or anytime. He cares about us. What a friend! What a Savior! He answers our prayer.

Isaiah 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
