Candy Canes in a red mug

THIS TIME OF year, we often see candy canes. Have you noticed that if you hold a candy cane upside down, it’s shaped like a J? The J can stand for Jesus. He came to earth as a baby, and we celebrate that at Christmas. As a man, He died to save us from our sins. The red stripe on the candy cane stands for His blood, which He shed so we could be forgiven. The white part reminds us that when we receive Jesus as our Savior, we are cleansed from all sin. In God’s eyes, we’ve been made whiter than snow.

The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV).

Through Jesus, God offers all of us the free gift of eternal life.


If so, pray this prayer from your heart.

God, I come to You in Jesus’ Name. I admit I am a sinner in need of a Savior. The Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9 NLT). I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead. And I confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior. According to Your Word, I am saved. I receive Your gift to me of eternal life. Thank you!

In Jesus’ Name, amen.
