First Day of Hanukkah - A Blessing

The true light, which gives light to everyone, 
was coming into the world.
John 1:9 

Today is the first day of Hanukkah.  Messianic Jews and those who celebrate with them already lit the first candle of Hanukkah when the stars came out last night.  Every night, the candles are lit with the center one, known as the Shamash, or servant, candle.  Jesus declared for all time:

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
John 8:12 
Hanukkah is a time that we can remember that Jesus is the Light that gives us light, that sets us ablaze with a passion for the things that He is passionate about...
 For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light do we see light.
Psalm 36:9
Pray this blessing over yourself and your loved ones today:
