“Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere, Go tell it on the mountain, Our Jesus Christ is born…”
Christmas may be over but this song is still relevant. Believers must tell it on the mountain, the valley, on the side of the street, and everywhere! Why? Because Jesus Christ was born! His birth signals the fulfillment of the Law, His birth led to our salvation, and His birth positions us to have a relationship with the Father.
This charge of “going and telling on the mountain” about the arrival of Christ is much more than a song for December 25th. This song title should point us to the Great Commission:
His birth was just the beginning! He IS the Gospel! He IS the Good News! We must go and tell about Him! We must go, the Word says so! The mountain is a great vantage point, you are high and your voice can echo loudly, but don’t forsake the valley. If someone is in the valley with you, chances are, they need to hear the Good News about Christ.
Our lives, our work ethics, how we love and care for those entrusted to us, and our conduct are all “mountains” we can stand on and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And those mountains can be used to tell the Good News about Christ. Christmas is but a day, His Good News leads to eternity.
So, my friend, go on ahead it on the mountain-over the hills and everywhere-that our Jesus Christ was born, lived, served, died, and rose again for you and me!
Peace and Blessings
