The story of Jesus’ birth into this world is one filled with cameos, small stories, pictures that all go to make up the complete story. One such cameo is the picture of Joseph and Mary standing at the door of the boarding house, seeking a room where none can be found.
Sadly the greatest gift the world has ever been offered is rarely received. We even fill our Christmas celebrations with cards, presents, family reunions, holidays food and drink. We make room for extra turkey, another James Bond film, more unwanted and unneccessary gifts, yet, in all our business at Christmas we still fail to make house room for the most important person.
Whilst the entire multitude of angels could not help but announce His birth (Luke 2:13-14) Jesus still stands alone seeking entrance to our lives.
‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.’ Revelation 3:20
Are you willing to give Him house room in your Christmas? Will you open the door of your heart and let Him come in to reside in it? Only then will Christmas really be a celebration, only then will you know what the angels were singing for!
