Go Tell it on The Mountain! Part Two
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
The birth of Jesus was a gift to the world that we still celebrate today. It is one of the most important events in our history and has changed the course of humankind forever. Without the joy in Christ Jesus, however, it would not be possible to appreciate this gift of life fully. The joy that comes from Christ helps us see life’s beauty and good. It is an expression of inner peace, contentment, and joy. The Joy that He brought to the world unlocks our hearts and souls to new possibilities and helps us see things from a higher perspective. When we experience joy, it heightens our awareness of God’s presence around us and opens doors of understanding between heaven and earth.
We have been blessed with Jesus’ birth to share in his love, mercy, kindness, and grace – all part of His perfect plan for salvation. So, as we commemorate this special event with our families and friends, let us also proclaim Jesus’ birth across the mountains! This can be done through various activities such as playing Christmas carols or hymns, attending church services, or simply sending out messages of peace and goodwill. We have been blessed with Jesus’ birth to appreciate what He has done for us: love us unconditionally, forgive our sins, offer us guidance and hope during difficult times and show mercy when we are in need.
Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”
We should always remember that Jesus is the source of true peace, joy, and love in our lives, no matter what circumstances may come our way. Remember, Jesus provides us a way to experience and share these feelings with others. As Christians, we are responsible for spreading this good news and sharing His grace with those around us. The Bible encourages us to “be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind” (Philippians 2:1). This means we should be united in living out the example of Christ and making Him known to all who come across our path.
So, as we celebrate the Christmas season, it’s important to remember what the holiday is all about: celebrating the birth of Jesus and His love for us. We should take this time of year to reflect on our faith journeys and how Jesus has brought joy into our lives. However, this joy isn’t only meant just for us – it’s also meant to be shared! We are called to share the good news of Jesus with those around us so that others may experience the same joy that comes from knowing Him as our Savior. This could mean having conversations with family or friends over dinner or inviting someone new to church services or Bible studies. It could also mean volunteering at a soup kitchen or donating items for those in need during the holiday season. “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.” Amen. 2 Corinthians 13:14
I pray that the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God bring you peace, comfort, and joy in Jesus’ name. Amen.
