In a world corrupted by so many hateful elements, one thing is pure: the sound of a child’s voice singing “Happy Birthday, Jesus.”
When children sing, they have no agenda. They are reveling in the rhythm and flow of the song. Maybe they fall short of a high note or miss a musical nuance. It doesn’t matter. The song is coming from the heart, with no filters. And when that song is directed to the Savior, it resonates with the power of its simplicity and sincerity. It echoes the song of the angels.
As adults, we can lose the honesty that rings in the voice of children. The true song of Christmas can be lost in the muddle of our busy lives. Much of the Christmas music we hear holds no spiritual value. It doesn’t emanate from hearts of worship. But when a child ends a song with the words, “Jesus, I love You,” heaven takes notice. The heart of the Savior is touched.
Becoming like little children in our love for Jesus is a goal worth attaining. There is hidden power in our song of adoration. As nations rage and evil seems to prevail, a simple song may be the instrument to melt hard hearts and turn them heavenward. Make time this Christmas to sing your personal love song to the king in the manger.
I will sing my own song of love and commitment to Jesus this week.
