A Candymaker's Witness
A Candymaker wanted to make a candy to be a witness. He started with a stick of hard, white candy. The white would represent the sinless nature of Jesus. The hardness of the candy would represent the Solid Rock, the foundation of the church and firmness of the promises of God. He placed a large red stripe on it to represent the blood shed by Christ on the cross so we could have eternal life. He then painted three small stripes to represent the scourging Jesus received for us that we might be healed. The candy cane is in the shape of a 'J' for the precious name of Jesus or to represent a shepherd's staff. Jesus is our 'Good Shepherd' who laid down His life for us. The flavor is peppermint which is similar to hyssop which was used in the Old Testament for purification. The next time you see a candy cane; think of Jesus, who came to give us life.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
