Candle 6 - Faithfulness

Updated: Mar 12, 2019



Tonight we light the 6th candle of Chanukkah. Our family lights this candle symbolically to help us focus on the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our life in relationship to Faithfulness.

What do you show constant support or loyalty too?

Individually we have to realize that God chose us to be a light to the world and that we have to let our light shine. We are created in the image of God. We are to be the children of God. God’s master plan was to put His Spirit inside of us in order to let our light shine.

The Fruit of Faithfulness:

Tonight we light the candle of faithfulness . According to Webster’s dictionary, faithfulness is described as having or showing true and constant support or loyalty.

Read the following bible passages:

• Galatians 5: 22 - 23 - Faithfulness • Zechariah chapters 11 • Psalm 119:105 • Matthew 5:14, 16

Zechariah 11:

In Zechariah 11 we see two issues.

pieces of silver. The other is the knowing neglect of the shepherds responsibility to the sheep.

Psalm 119:

“ Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” - Psalm 119:105

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” - Isaiah 40:8

“Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast.” - Psalm 119:89-90

Do you recognize that Psalm 119 did not promise that the whole distance would be illuminated in order to see clearly our destination? What God did promise is that His word would be a lamp unto our feet and light unto our path. That conveys that there is a level of trust in God that He will be faithful to us.

Matthew 5

"You are light for the world. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:14,16

Individually we have to realize that God chose us to be a light to the world and that we have to let our light shine. We are created in the image of God. We are to be the children of God. God’s master plan was to put His Spirit inside of us in order to let our light shine.

One is the foreshadowing of Judas and Jesus over 30

God is not looking for you to be Jewish or Gentile on the outside. He is not looking for you to do something outwardly to make you something. God is desiring to be in relationship with you and to put His Spirit inside of you. From this point you are to let that fusion of light shine into the dark world. The fusion of the Creator and the created is something the enemy did not see coming.

God putting himself inside of man at Pentecost, is what we say in chess, “Checkmate”. The evil plan of the enemy was once and for all put into checkmate. It doesn't matter which way he turns, the light of God is in HIS people now, that gives the enemy no way out.

“For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God.” - Romans 2:28-29

“But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” - Ephesians 5:13-14

“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”- 2 Corinthians 4:6

Questions For Reflection:

• Do you see yourself as the Light of the world? • Do you believe that the light you are makes things visible around you? • Are you awake in order for Christ to shine on you? • How faithful am I to God? • How faithful am I to others around me? • Do I believe that the word of God stands forever?
