As “ever-blooming” roses, are you dedicated to letting your light shine? Keep in mind light shines brightest in the darkness. Fear not!

“Hanukkah” in Hebrew means “dedication” and is often referred to as the “Feast of Dedication” or “Festival of Lights”. Ironically, the only time Hanukkah is mentioned in the Bible is in the New Testament. Evidently, Jesus celebrated Hanukkah as it is referred to as a “Feast of Dedication” in the Gospel of John.

John 10:22-30 (NKJV)

22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication  in Jerusalem, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch. 24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. 26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”
