No Room at the Inn

She laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn”.

The fact that there was no room for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in the inn at Bethlehem on the first Christmas should make us wonder. The birth of Christ was planned by God from all eternity, and the details of his birth and life were announced by the prophets. How could God forget to make room for his only Son, the Child who owns the world, and every inch of room in the whole universe?
Obviously, God did this on purpose. There was no room in the inn because God wanted to show that His Son comes as a Savior, to reconcile a world that is at enmity with God.

Today, he does not seek an inn; he seeks room in our own hearts and lives.
