“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not suppressed it.”
- John 1:5, CJB
This Chanukah season has come on the heels of Thanksgiving; highly appropriate, considering the Chanukah story. Chanukah is Hebrew for dedication. We remember the Maccabees, namely Judah Maccabee, for what they had to do so that they and all of Judaism could live as God intended. While they fought their enemies, that one night of oil burned for 8 nights. This is exactly the time it took to defeat their foes. Centuries later, as Jews and the Gentiles who stand with them, celebrate the miracle of lights. We recite the Chanukah story, eat foods fried in oil to remind us of the oil that lasted 8 nights, and give thanks for all God’s done in our lives and continues to do for his chosen people. Darkness may seem to loom large, but Yeshua’s light looms even larger.
In this season of Chanukah, let’s let His light shine through us and carry it to others so that it may shine through them. Let Jews and Gentiles alike come together as one new man. For all of us who stand together with God, will see a victory.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
