2017-12-31 Make room for the King

Introduction

On Monday (25th) I shared the words of Peter Larson who writes, “Despite our efforts to keep Him out, God intrudes. The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: a virgin’s womb and an empty tomb. Jesus entered our world through a door marked ‘No entrance’ and left through a door marked ‘No Exit’.”

That first Christmas, there was no room for Him in the Inn. The world never wants to make room for Christ at Christmas, or even in everyday life. So, man killed Him and sealed the tomb with a huge stone to shut Him out of our lives once and for all. But God removed the stone to prove that Jesus will not be shut up or shut out of His plans.
