Go Tell It On The Mountain
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:8-11
"Go, Tell It On The Mountain, Over the hills and everywhere; Go, Tell It On The Mountain, That Jesus Christ is born." When I was a boy, we sang this old spiritual every year at Christmas time. It has one of those catchy tunes that sticks in your head and doesn't easily go away.
My prayer for each of you is that the message of this short tune will stick in your head and heart throughout the Christmas season, and as you find yourself singing it, that you will remember that this is our greatest purpose.
Each of us, who serves the churches of the BMA of Mississippi in the work of missions, are all about going and telling people the story of Jesus. He is and will always remain that most precious of all gifts. So, please join me this Christmas, "Go, Tell It On The Mountain, Over the hills and everywhere; Go, Tell It On The Mountain, That Jesus Christ is born."
Cherita and I want to wish all of you a very Christ filled holiday season. God bless each of you.
