Candy Cane

Urban legend ( claims the candy cane’s shape forms a “J”, standing for Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 , John 3:16).  Or by flipping it over, the candy cane represents the staff of the shepherds who came to visit Jesus at His birth (Luke 2:8-20). The legend says the stripes represent Jesus’ sacrifice (Isaiah 53:5), with the red stripe being blood, and the white being purity (Isaiah 1:18). While no historical information to support these claims exists, let’s check to see if you would need Jesus’ sacrifice. The Bible says “it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). Have you ever lied, stolen, hated someone, or even used God’s name as a curse word? Would you be innocent or guilty? Heaven or Hell? God does not want you to go to Hell (2 Peter 3:9). Jesus, being fully man and fully God, lived a sinless life, fulfilled the Law and willingly died on the cross for your sins. On the third day Jesus rose from the dead defeating sin and death. If you repent of your sin and willingly trust in Jesus Christ alone, then you will have eternal life! Repent and believe the Gospel (Mark 1:15). Some say that a green stripe added to a candy cane is a reminder that Jesus is a gift from God (John 3:16). Please consider this as you enjoy your next Candy Cane.  80-BEZEUGEN  802-393-8436
