Is There Room for Him?

“And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:1-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬

Jesus ended up being born in a stable, a manger, because there was no room for Him… 

Some people missed out on the greatest event in human history – the birth of the God child, the second person of the Trinity. In a little town named Bethlehem…

The hotel owner had no room…

Other people, who could have come to help a pregnant girl and her family, had no room…

Later on in history,

King Herod had no room…

The soldiers, the ones that carried out the killing of all Jewish children under 2 years old, had no room…

Even later in His life,

His fellow nationals, the Jewish people, had no room for Him…

The religious people of His day did not have room for Him…

At the end of His earthly life,

The government leaders had no room for Him…

The people at large, the crowd that yelled “Crucify him”, had no room for Him…

How about today? 

Do people have room for Him? Does government? Do religious people? Our country?
Our churches?  Our society?

Maybe a more poignant question would be – Do I have room for Him…Jesus? 

Do you? 

Please, don’t miss out on the blessing, like so many have throughout history…make room for Him!

May you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
