Freedom isn’t free, and I have found a greater understanding of that statement.
During the celebration of Hanukkah (John 10:22-42) Jesus made His last and most clear declaration of His Deity. Sadly there are many today, both Jews and Gentiles, and even some Christians, who say that Jesus never claimed to be God. My response, “O YES He did!”
Hanukkah is an excellent time to remember that YOU are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Your body is His dwelling place. Hanukkah gives us a unique opportunity to “present our bodies as a living sacrifice” and “to lay aside every sin and weight.”
