Today begins the lighting of the first of nine candles celebrating Hanukkah.
Thinking on how this applies to my life as a Christian it occured to me the miracle of the light that shines in me because of the Holy Spirit (the oil) I can partake of Hanukkah in the spiritual by sharing the Light.
A word of encouragement to a co-worker who has lost hope in their situation. A prayer with a friend fighting a battle of sickness. A kind word of caring to a neighbor who is experiencing their first Christmas after the loss of a spouse or a child.
Surely in prayer and asking, the Father will light a new candle every day and cause His light to shine in darkness.
Celebrating and lighting the first candle of Hanukkah – Day One.
“Let your light so shine…and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 NKJV
