Luke 2:7 ” And she gave birth to her first-born, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”

Do you have room for Christ? You may counter with, “I have room, but my heart is so lowly, so base, so dirty.” It tells us here that Mary bound the baby Jesus in bands of cloth in order to keep her newborn clean, dry, and to maintain body heat…and placed him up off the dirty floor and away from drafts in a feed trough…which was far from clean itself. You may say, “I have room for Him, but I feel like my heart has been a den for beasts & devils.” The stable where Jesus was born was far from a spotless environment to bring a tiny baby. It housed cattle, sheep, goats, and assorted fowl…each with its unique odor & manure. Finally, you may say, “I have room for Christ, but my heart isn’t worthy of allowing a King in.” The place where God chose for His Son to be born was as undeserving & wretched as anywhere on earth…but yet, God saw fit for Jesus to be born right there. So when I ask you if you have room for Jesus…remember the stable. It doesn’t matter your past. It doesn’t matter the mess you’ve made of your life up to now. It only matters if you’re serious about turning your life around for Him.
