The Servent’s Light

The Servent’s Light…

The Shamash candle is the servant candle, the ministering candle. This candle carries the first light and lights all the other candles. It’s not just the Shamash. It’s the Shamash Light.

There’s a profound connection here. Jesus is the Shamash of the Lord, the “Servant of the Lord.” He is also, “the Light of the World,” the Light that lights up the light of man. He is the Shamash Light. The two go together.

It means the one who serves the Lord, will be a light. The one who does the will of God, will shine. The more you serve and obey the Lord, do the will of God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, the more you will shine with the light of God. The more your life will radiate with His glory.

If you’re not shining, chances are you’re not serving the Lord – not with all your heart. Serve the Lord with gladness and you’ll shine with the radiance of God. Your light will light up the lives of those around you, for you, in Jesus… are the Shamash light.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Serve the Lord today – not only with gladness but shining with the “Shamash light.”

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
