MAKE ROOM FOR HIM from Mike Odeh's blog

"He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. " John 1:11

Knock, knock! Who is there? "My name is Joseph, I'm here with my  wife Mary! She is in labor and about to give birth to the Savior , do you have a room for the Savior?"

"Sorry, I don't have room for the Savior. " 

There's room for everyone else but no room for the Savior. How many doors did Joseph and Mary knock on? We do not know but every one of them had no room for the Savior! Their houses were packed to the full with all kinds of human beings but no room for the Savior. 

The Son of God was coming into the world but no one had a room for Him. There's no room for the Maker of heaven and earth. 

It's that time of the year again when the birth of Christ is celebrated universally. It's most likely He was born some other time possibly spring because of the Shepherds who were out in the  night tending their flocks but it's great to agree on a day to celebrate the birth of Christ the Savior and LORD! 

Over 2000 years ago it was the birth of Christ and no one had a room for Him, hence He was born in a Manger. Today, we celebrate His birth but do you have room for the Savior in your heart, life, home, Church and business?

It's sad how many are celebrating Christmas without Christ in their lives! They have room for Santa, they have room for Christmas trees and the lights but no room for the True Vine, no room for the Light of the world. There's room for all kinds of gifts but no room for the best gift ever given by God, Christ the Messiah!

There's room for all kinds of food and drinks but no room for the Bread of life. 

Room for all kinds of friends but no room for the LORD !

Today even right now, the Savior is standing at the door of your heart knocking,  seeking a lifelong relationship with you, do you have room for Him? Will you let Him in?
