If might be difficult to see in the photo, but the figures shown on Dewey Hill tell the Christmas story. Every night from now til Christmas the story is told with narration, lights, and the figures. This happens after dark each evening. The story of Jesus’ birth is being told from the mountain (at least from as much of a mountain as we have in Grand Haven.)
If you want to get the attention of a large group of people you position yourself higher than they are so everyone can see and hear you.
God spoke from Mt. Zion.
A section of Isaiah 42 is a Song Of Praise To The Lord. “Let the desert and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountain tops.” (Isaiah 42: 11)
A person addressing a crowd from a high place is not afraid to tell them what he thinks. He wants everyone to hear what he has to say.
When you are telling others about Jesus are you meek and soft spoken, not wanting to draw attention to yourself? Or are you shouting from the mountain tops drawing people’s attention to the Good News you have to tell?
Let’s not be afraid. Let us be bold, confident in the story we want to share. Go Tell It On The Mountain. Let your voice be heard.
