Do You Have Room?

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.” ~ John 1:1-4 ~

“He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” ~ John 1:10-14~

Nativity“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:” ~ Philippians 2:5-7 ~

I really like this song by Shawna Edwards.

Do You Have Room?

They journeyed far, a weary pair;
They sought for shelter from the cold night air.
Some place where she could lay her head,
Where she could give her Babe a quiet bed.

Was there no room? No corner there?
In all the town a spot someone could spare?
Was there no soul come to their aid?
A stable bare was where the family stayed.

Do you have room for the Savior? And do you seek Him anew?
Have you a place for the One who lived and died for you?
Are you as humble as a shepherd boy, or as wise as men of old?
Would you have come that night? Would you have sought the light?
Do you have room?

A star arose, a wondrous light,
A sign from God – this was the holy night,
And yet so few would go to see
The Babe who came to rescue you and me.

 This Child divine is now a King.
The gift of life to all the world He brings,
And all mankind He saves from doom,
But on that night, for Him, there was no room.

 Do you have room for the Savior? And do you seek Him anew?
Have you a place for the One who lived and died for you?
Are you as humble as a shepherd boy, or as wise as men of old?
Would you have come that night? Would you have sought the light?
Do you have room?

Will you come tonight? Will you seek the light?
Do you have room?

Do you have room? This is not a question for Christmas time alone, but for everyday. The Son of God left Heaven, where He was loved, adored, worshiped, praised, honoured and glorified, to come as a human, to live a perfect life – despised, alone, forgotton, hated, homeless, and rejected, to die our death all for the joy that was set before Him – what joy? The joy of salvation for all mankind, for you and me. The gift is free, we have but to accept it and let Him into our lives as the first, last, and best.

c.Hebrews12.2

One last thought:

Christmas is a time for giving? Let us not give as the world gives, but let us give as Jesus gave. He did not become an angel to save perfect, sinless angels, He became a man to save mankind. He gave to us who were most needful, that which we needed – salvation. Let us use this time to give to those who don’t have as much as ourselves, and to those who are really needy, and even in support of missions. By doing this we will bring glory to God and demonstrate to the world the true meaning of Christ coming as a baby.
