Christmas Fortnight Day 11

As we continue looking at the birth of our Lord, let’s spend these last few days with some of the people connected with the event.  How about the ‘innkeeper’?  This famous person who was of unknown gender, age or heritage.  One who ‘had no room for Jesus’—an anonymous person we all remember.

Luke 2:7 records, “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.” 

But what about me/you? Do we have any room?  Do we have any time for Jesus?  Or are we like him/her, oblivious to the KING’s family knocking at his door.  At your door?

Jesus speaking to the church at Laodicea said,

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.“  Rev. 3:20.

This message was to the ‘church’, a ‘church’ that had no need for “Jesus”.  Who thought of themselves,

I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing…”  Rev. 3:17a.

Ring any bells?  Many ‘so-called’ churches, Christians and media stars of ‘Christianity’ seem to have this same opinion of themselves.  But what did Jesus say?

and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”. 

The ‘church’, those who claimed His name, had decided they ‘had no room for Him and His ways’.

Jesus also said in Mark 2:17, “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” 

Until we realize our need—

that we are “poor in spirit”,

we have no need for a Savior!!!

As long as I see ‘ME’ as ‘righteous’, I don’t need Jesus.

How about you?

Do you have room for Jesus?

What is your legacy?

 Room?

 NO room?

Do you know ‘TRUTH’ or

have NO truth?

Jesus said, “I AM THE TRUTH”!! (Jn 14:6)
