On the way to the meeting tonight I put on the mix tape my daughter made me two years ago. She makes one for me every Christmas and honestly I don't always like her selections. Those Carribean beats and even some of the smarmy supposedly heart warming lyrics are just not my style. But she hit the nail on the head with one of the songs. It's a great rendition of Go Tell it On The Mountain that has a great beat to it. It rocks! But the thing I like best about it, besides the fact that I can sing along with it and no one can hear me, are the lyrics. The refrain says:
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born!
That's what we are called as Christians to do. Too many people haven't heard the good news. Or any good news, it seems lately. So it falls to us to tell people through our bible studies, our Sunday School classes, our talking with each other. The good news...the Gospel is ours to share. Not hoard it or keep it inside, but share...over the hills and everywhere! Jesus Christ is born and lives in us. Let's share this good news.
