Have You Made Room?
Long ago there was a family hiding from the storm but they found no place at the keeper's door. They settled in the barn and soon a Child was born … a Gift to save a world so cold and hollow. A Saviour King, lying in a manger, has come to offer sinful souls a way of escape.
“Christ was born at an inn; he came into the world to sojourn here for awhile, as at an inn, and to teach us to do likewise. We are become by sin like an outcast infant, helpless and forlorn; and such a one was Christ. He well knew how unwilling we are to be meanly lodged, clothed, or fed; how we desire to have our children decorated and indulged; how apt the poor are to envy the rich, and how prone the rich to disdain the poor. But when we by faith view the Son of God being made man and lying in a manger, our vanity, ambition, and envy are checked. We cannot, with this object rightly before us, seek great things for ourselves or our children.” ~Matthew Henry, 1710
There was no room in the Inn … is there room in your heart for God to write His story?
Luke 2:4-7 – “And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
The shepherds counting sheep in the night didn’t fear the Glory Light. God has come to raise the lowly! In His hands He holds tomorrow. You can come to Him just as you are … won’t you make room in your heart for His Glory?
Friend, you are precious in His sight!
