No Room At The Inn

That time of year is coming up quickly, where we are all rushing to and fro, trying to get the last minute wishes taken care of and etc.

Christmas is the time we share the story of Christ's birth. And we all know the story of how there was no room at the inn for Mary and Joseph and that is why Jesus was born in a manger.

Luke Chapter 2 .....Story of Christ's birth

Luke 2 v 7....And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn........

While thinking about this saying I was thinking that we alot of times have no room at the inn for Jesus. We in our everyday busy lives do not make time to spend with Jesus each day. We are in a sense telling Him when we do not have time, that there is no room at the inn for Him.

Now I am not saying nor am I condemning anyone about how much time they do or do not spend with the Lord each day. I am just saying maybe we could be made a little more aware of how much time we actually do give to our Savior. We tend to think of Him alot when Christmas comes around, but what about after Christmas, what about during those long hot summer months? What about on our jobs when we are putting in extra long hours?

If we would actually take the time to spend with Him when we think we are too busy worrying with our problems at work or just in our everyday activities, then our problems would become a lot easier to manage, because when He is present, worries are not.

When Jesus is with us, peace is present. AMEN! So why would we then not want to spend more time with Him? Why would we not keep an open room for Him at the inn ( in our time and in our hearts)?

Ask yourself this question. Do I have room for Jesus at the inn ( in my schedule) today?

How can we spend more time with this Wonderful, Awesome, Savior of ours?
