THE STORY OF THE CANDY CANE By Becky Kew – available online at www.gospelhall.org
The Candy Cane is in the shape of a shepherd’s staff. Jesus is the shepherd who gave himself for the sheep. Who are the sheep?
The Candy Cane is “hard candy.” It is made of hard candy to remind us that Jesus is the ROCK that we are to build our lives on.
He is strong and His word cannot be broken.He will and does keep his word. He cannot lie.
The white stripes on the candy can represent his sinless life. He was pure and Holy.1 Pet. 2:22
The narrow red stripes remind us about the stripes, or scars which he got when he was whipped and beaten.Isa. 53:5
When we break the candy cane it is a reminder that Jesus’ body was broken for us.
