Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let Earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing…
The Lord,Jesus, is come. Immanuel, God with us, came but there was no place for Him to stay. No room at the inn.
So a manger is the place He is born and rests. As He grows very few people prepare Him room. As a matter of fact He is surrounded by those, religious leaders mind you, that want Him eliminated and they dedicate themselves to this goal until it is accomplished by crucifixion on a cross.
Within this story we see how every heart that prepared Him room, though they were few, found comfort, peace, joy and rest.
God gave us Jesus so that if we believe in Him, in other words prepare Him room in our heart, we would find His saving grace. (John 3:16)
Jesus invites us all to come to Him to find rest from our trouble. (Matthew11:28)
And He longs to be with you. To live with you, in your heart, if you make room. (Revelation 3:20-21)
So, as we celebrate the moment that God came to be with us in the person of Jesus Christ, will you invite Him in? From my own experience, I can tell you, your life will be changed for the good and will never be the same.
