Experiencing Christ (4 of 4)
Series: Experiencing Advent
Stephen Whitney
Luke 2:16-20

The word witness comes from the old Anglo Saxton word to know.
A witness is someone who tells what they have seen or hear. They can provide personal testimony to some event which has happened.
They can say they have first-hand knowledge about something.

Christian witnessing is sharing the good news that Christ has come
so we can have our sins forgiven through his sacrifice for them.

The Christmas carol Go Tell It on the Mountain is a African- American spiritual which dates back to at least 1865. It may have been written during the dark years of the Civil War when there was not much good news to celebrate was the war dragged on and on.

As with the case of most spirituals the music and lyrics cannot
be attributed to just any one person because it has been handed
down in verbal form over many years.

Versions of the carol are as varied and distinctive as the people who sing it, but at its heart it is a song of joy. The song tells of the
Birth of Christ to the shepherds and urges believers to share the good news that our Savior has been born.

Go tell in on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born.
Verse 3
Down in a lowly manger, the humble Christ was born,
And brought us God's salvation, that blessed Christmas morn.

Go tell in on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born.
Verse 4
He brought with Him forgiveness, he lived to show us the way;
He came to redeem all creation, and to wash all our sins away.

Believers are called to be witnesses of their experience with Christ
and should reflect a desire to share the blessings of our salvation.
