-Candy Cane Story: There once lived a candy maker in Indiana who decided he wanted to make a special candy that would present the Gospel story, and would be a witness for Christ. It was his wish to somehow incorporate the birth, ministry and death of Jesus Christ in one tasty treat.
    He began with a stick of pure, white, hard candy. Why? He made it white to symbolize the purity of the virgin birth and the sinless nature of Jesus. And he made it hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the solid foundation of all those within whom is God's Holy Spirit, and the firmness of the promise of God.
    Then the candy maker shaped the candy in the form of a 'J' to represent the precious name of Jesus who came to earth as our Savior. 
    It could also represent the staff of the 'Good Shepherd which reaches down into the ditches of the world to lift out the fallen lambs who, like all sheep, have gone astray.
    Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candy maker decided to add red stripes. He used three small stripes to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received from the Roman soldiers before His death on the cross. The large red stripe was for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we could have the promise of eternal life.
    The smell and taste of peppermint relate to the herb hyssop. Psalm 51:7 states "Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean, wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."
    The creation of the candy cane.

-Children of God:.The children of God are those included in the resurrection -Luke 20:36; Romans 8:17; John 1:12; 1John 2:24; 1Peter 1:3.
    One has to be out from the law to be a son of God; a result of faith -1Peter 1:9. Notice that it doesn't say the result of you keeping the ten commandments, tithing, etc. is salvation. It says faith. 
    The difference between the children of God and the children of the devil..(see also about being adopted into His family)
    The children of God.(Galatians 4:26).await the time when they will be fully of the righteousness they have accepted when they individually accepted Christ into their heart -2Peter 3:13; Hebrews 6:10-19; Revelation 19:6-8; Revelation 21:26,27; Revelation 22:11,12.

-Counselor: In Isaiah 9:6 Jesus is predicted to be a wonderful counselor, one with whom we may freely talk with no fear whatsoever. Many seek psychiatric help these days and should, if they lack the personal relationship with the Father that He made possible
    Many have a difficult time understanding themselves. We all just sort of live life and make our plans and try to make them work out. Many don't work out and disillusionment often reigns. To understand the self, one has to understand God. With more of God's mind in you, you'll see yourself as God does -Proverbs 20:24
    To get more of God's mind, study and pray. Prayer is talking to God and listening for answers and impressions that well up in your mind.
