While they were in Bethlehem, the time came for Mary to deliver her child.
And she gave birth to her first born son and wrapped him in bands of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
As the palace and inn have no room for Christ, and as the places of public resort have none, have you room for Christ? “Well”, one says, “I have room for him, but I am not worthy that he should come to me.” Ah! I did not ask about worthiness; but have you room for him?
(Charles Haddon Spurgeon: 1834-1892)
How many of us can truthfully say that we have room for Christ in our often frenetically busy lives?
Even on the Sabbath day more and more people prefer to go shopping or watching football instead of praising and worshipping our Father God in church!
And, sadly, many people who do attend church regularly do not read their Bible (always assuming that they actually own one) from one Sunday until the next.
Too often, living as we do in our own personal comfort zones, we forget that Jesus died on the cross at Calvary to save our sins.
Will you join me in making room for Christ this Christmastide?
Let him not have died in vain!
With many heartfelt blessings
