“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.”
Luke 2:7 KJV
John W. Peterson wrote one of my favorite hymns “No Room”. “No room, here in the hearts of mankind No room, no cheery welcome could find No room, surely the world is blind No room, no room”. How it must hurt our precious Saviour because some people haven’t made room for Him.
People make room and time for the things they want but they say they are too busy for Jesus. Where would you and I be today if Jesus hadn’t died on the cross and paid the penalty for our sins? We would be on our way to hell. Thank God that Jesus loves us enough to die for us.
When Jesus comes back for us, will we be able to look Him in the eye or will we have to hang our head in shame because we didn’t make room for Him in our heart, in our activities and in our life? Jesus deserves to have first place in our heart and in everything we do.
Many times when we are with someone we brag about our children and grandchildren. How often do we brag about Jesus and how wonderful He is and all that He has done for us? When it’s testimony time at church, we should stand up and tell the wonderful things He has done for us and how wonderful He is.
Heavenly Father, please help us to make time for Jesus and tell everyone how wonderful He is and all that He has done for us. Jesus, I love You so much. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
