Is the Inn Still Full?

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. (Luke 2:6,7)

He never was One to insist on getting His way, or forcing His will.

When the inn was found to be full, His parents accepted what was offered, a manger in a stable.

He doesn’t force His way today.

He doesn’t insist that we open up to Him and let Him in.

He waits, day after day, for an invitation into our hearts.

During the Christmas season, all of the preparation, decorating, shopping and celebrating can leave us feeling like the inn at Bethlehem – too full. And just as nothing in this world can satisfy us outside of a loving relationship with God our Father, no amount of gift-giving or receiving can satisfy our deepest Christmas wishes like a few intimate moments with Jesus, the baby of Bethlehem, our Savior and King.

Is the inn still full? Is your heart still too crowded for Jesus? Then it’s time to ask some lingering guests to leave.

Be blessed!
