Do You Have Room For Him?

<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">Say you're taking a trip last minute out of no where. Not a good idea, for some, it's a great idea. If you remember the important parts of the trip that is, the motel room. But hey, we all make mistakes like that, right? You've planned for everything else but the room, the most important part of the trip! You've realized that every motel and hotel you go to has a "no vacancy" sign on the outside. Have I made this mistake? Why of course not. Say you’re taking a trip last minute out of no where. Not a good idea, for some, it’s a great idea. If you remember the important parts of the trip that is, the motel room. But hey, we all make mistakes like that, right?

You’re begging to the attendant at the service counter, “Please make room for me!” But every attempt goes unheard of. You go from hotel to hotel and motel to motel, still no room can be found.

She brought forth her firstborn Son…and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Luke 2:7 NKJV

In the gospel of Luke we read that Mary and Joseph having this same ordeal. Their trip was planned though, much anticipated and I’m sure Mary was anxious to get the child labor out of the way. But why couldn’t they find a room? Really? The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Messiah, The Chosen One, Son of God, the Creator, they were told to go away. Jesus, Mary and Joseph got rejected at every Inn (motel) they came across. They came to one Inn and all they had was a stable, a stable for animals. Not the best amenities but it worked.

  • Do we make the same mistake of the innkeeper? Do we tell Jesus that you have no time for Him today, ignore the prompting of the Spirit because its not convenient?
  • This Christmas, give to God your life, your time, and especially your heart. Listen for that urgent knock, and every time you hear it, move aside and make room for Him.
