“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
John 8:36 KJV

Pastor Haldor Lillenas wrote a beautiful hymn “Glorious Freedom”.  I love these words in this heart touching and inspiring hymn.  “Freedom from fear with all of its torments; Freedom from care with all of its pain; Freedom in Christ, my blessèd Redeemer— He who has rent my fetters in twain.”

Today is Christmas and as we celebrate the birthday of our precious Saviour, let us give Him our heart and all of our time as a gift just as He gave us all of His time and His life for us on the cross when He died for our sins.  The Baby Jesus grew up and gave His life for our sins.  O how Jesus loves you.

Don’t forget to read your Bible out loud about the birth of Jesus when you get up and before you open your gifts.  The best gift you can give Jesus is your heart, your life and all of your time.  Please join me in singing Happy Birthday to Jesus.  What a Saviour!  What a Friend, this Jesus of Nazareth!

As we sing this song to Jesus, let us remember that it is because of His sacrifice for us on the cross that we can be born again into God’s family.  “Happy Birthday to You.  Happy Birthday to You.  Happy Birthday, dear Jesus.  Happy Birthday to You.”

I used to sing this song when I was younger in Sunday school.  “Happy birthday to you.  Happy birthday to you.  Born again means salvation.  How many have you?”  Have you been born again into God’s family through the cleansing redeeming blood of Jesus?
