Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room

Learning HOW Christ came gives us further insight into learning WHY He came.

The Lord of all creation not only chose to take on our human flesh to save us from our sins, but He chose to be born in an out of the way town, into a humble family, and laid in a lowly manger. They had no room for Him at the local inn, so there He lay in swaddling clothes, the everlasting God becoming a servant of all. Though He was rich, He became poor, so that we could become truly rich.

So if the Holy and Anointed One could be born into a such an unworthy environment under such undesirable circumstances, then what could stop Him from coming alive in me? I may feel unworthy, like an unfit manger or an insignificant town, not prepared for a righteous king, but still He desires to yoke himself to the lowly, bind Himself to the weak, heal the broken, wash the dirty, redeem the indebted, set free the captive and raise to life those who are dead. There is no one like Him.

Mary said, “My soul magnified the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has looked on the humble estate of his servant…He has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.”
— Luke 1:46-48, 52-53

So my question to you is, do you have room for Him? If not, what is keeping Him out? Pride? Shame? Fear? Pain? Bitterness? Let earth receive her King, and let every heart prepare Him room.

–Micah 5:2

–Luke 2:4-7
