A candymaker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would be a witness, so he made the Christmas Candy Cane. He incorporated several symbols from the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ. He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and firmness of the promises of God. The candymaker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior. It could also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd"
Thank you for accepting this gift of a candy cane. Even though the story on the front is fictitious, we hope it and the candy cane reminds you of the first Christmas gift - a Savior. Through JesusÍ birth, death and resurrection, He reconciled God and man. We have all lied, stolen, and hated at least once in our lives and the Bible is clear that if we break one of the Ten Commandments then we are guilty of breaking them all. The good news is that we no longer have to stagger under the burden of guilt and shame. Our hearts can be clear, because Jesus paid the penalty for our sins! We can be forgiven if we repent and believe in Him. This year as you give gifts to others, remember GodÍs greatest gift of all„Jesus. For more information please visit: www.YouGotOurTract.com
