Choosing religious birthday wishes for a Christian friend or loved one can be challenging, especially if you want to sprinkle it with love and grace but just can’t find the right words.
It seems like the more important the person is to you, the harder it is to find the right message.
You want to express your feelings of affection without being corny or disingenuous. And you want to say something that reminds them of how great God is.

That’s why I’ve compiled the best religious Christian birthday messages and birthday blessings so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
Your Christian friend or relative will be touched to receive spiritual birthday wishes that remind them of the love of God on their extra special day.
I’ve split this list of religious birthday messages into several categories that I hope will help you find the perfect Christian message for that special someone.
Bible Greetings and Wishes from Paul
The apostle Paul wrote many of the letters in the new testament. The greetings and prayers in his letters are encouraging and inspiring.
It is only fitting to start a list of religious birthday wishes and blessings with the writings of Paul. You can use them as an end to your letter or you may use his words as a springboard to craft your own greeting.
