Read the words of this song with me:
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing; He chastens and hastens His will to make known. The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing. Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.
Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine; So from the beginning the fight we were winning; Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!
We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant, And pray that Thou still our Defender will be. Let Thy congregation escape tribulation; Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
As we celebrate Jesus’ birthday, as we gather together, let me remind you of three things we should all never forget:
- He forgets not His own!
- God is at our side!
- The Lord makes us free!!
You are not forgotten – God knows you by name and He sent Jesus to earth to save you and to rescue you. The King of Kings has adopted you, He knows how many hairs are on your head, and He loves you so much that His son died for you. WE ARE HIS KIDS!!!!
You are never alone – when we accept God, He is always with us. Hold tight to the hand of the God of the universe, the creator of heaven and earth!! GOD KNOWS US AND STILL LOVES US!!!
You are free – no matter what, the love of God frees us from this world. Celebrate, Friend, Celebrate!! WE ARE FREE!!!!
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:11-14)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life!! (John 3:16)
