Some people missed out on the greatest event in human history – the birth of the God child, the second person of the Trinity. The people in the overcrowded streets of Bethlehem, busy and hurried, had no room. The hotel owner had no room…and Jesus was left to be born in a feeding trough for animals.
A little later on – King Herod had no room…even with the testimony of the wise men and some of his own people. The soldiers that carried out the killing of all Jewish children under 2 years old had no room…I wonder if any of them questioned their order.
Even later in His life – His fellow nationals had no room for Him…they wanted a military savior, He wanted to save their souls. The religious people did not have room for Him…while He went around healing and teaching about God’s grace and mercy.
At the end of His earthly life – The government leaders had no room for Him…politics took over and true justice went out the window. The people at large had no room for Him…so they screamed “Crucify Him!”.
How about today? Do people have room for Him? Does government? Do religious people? Our country?
Do I have room for Him…Jesus? Do you? He is the Savior of the world…Emmanuel, God with us.
Please, make room for Him!
(Let me know if I can help in that decision in any way!)
Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas, holidays and New Year!!!
