And she gave birth to her Son, Her First born; and she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room or place for them in the inn. A very familiar text that is often used for sermons at Christmas.
Every day for believers we are reminded that every day is Christmas yet we forget to leave the light on as the Motel 8 commercial comes on and says I will leave the light on for you. In our fast pace Busy World we seem to push Jesus out of our lives and put him on the back burner.
Some have put Him off the stove and that is dangerous, seems like the world has taken Jesus off the stove when we took prayer out of school. Start to call right wrong and wrong right. When we redefined marriage.
When we no longer put love over everything else.
No Room for them in the inn, Have you left some Room for God?
Do we give our best to everything else and give God the rest, the leftovers?
There was no room in the inn, there was a big concert in town, Beyonce was in town, Rogers was in town and there was an NBA game in town.
In Bethlehem the crowd was there for paying taxes. The place was just too busy for the Savior, but the Savior was not too busy for you.
Salvation is more important than sales.
Eternity is more important than profit.
The Master is more important than money.
What crowds Jesus out of your life?
I was trying to take a picture and my phone said, you are out of storage.
You must make room by deleting some files.
What do you have to get rid of to make room for Jesus?
Jesus I am standing at the door and knocking.
If you let me into your heart I will give you your heart desires.
I will open up the windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing.Let me in and I will wipe the tears from your eyes.
I am the Good Shepherd.David let me in, Listen to what he said:The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not lack.He feed, guide, and shield me.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.He restores my life, with Him I have no fear.
He takes care of my enemies.Surely only goodness, mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all days of my life.Make room for Jesus Now.
