Chanukah remembers a time when God reached down into history and performed a great miracle in Jerusalem. It’s not often that we witness a true miracle such as one day’s worth of lamp oil burning continuously for eight days. But, at the same time, as Believers, we live a miracle every single day. That miracle is Yeshua Himself in us and with us as Immanuel, God with us. He performed miracles when He was here on earth; when we came to faith in Him, He performed a miracle in our hearts. He made our spirits alive with eternal life, and He gave us new life. That’s a miracle we get to live every day.
Tonight, we use the Servant Candle to light four Chanukah candles, and we again give thanks for the Light of the World.
Blessed are You, LORD, our God, king of the universe, who has sanctified us by His commandments and has given us Yeshua the Messiah, the light of the world.
Blessed are You, LORD, our God, king of the universe, who has performed miracles for our ancestors in those days at this time.
The Miracle of Life in Yeshua
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah, the One You sent” (John 17:3 TLV).
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 TLV).
“Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV).
Thank You, Yeshua, for giving us LIFE – now and forevermore! You have given us the miracle of new life. The old things have passed away, and You make us new. Thank You for taking the pains of the past and turning them into Your good purposes. Thank You for Your life-giving love that sustains us. Thank You for giving us eternal life with You!
