Luke 2:7 “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
He craves for a permanent relationship with us but he will never force himself on us. Hear this:
Revelation 3:20 “Behold I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
Can you imagine that? He stands at the door and knock! How can the owner of the house stand and be knocking? Remember:
John 1:3 “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”
He made everything, living and non-living including you and I, yet he knocks the door. He knocks in humility when he could have badged in. He needn’t knock but he respects the willpower he has given to man.
Friend, if you keep him out, you will suffer for it. The more you keep Christ out, the more room the devil will seek to occupy. Not only that, the devil will bring challenges which he knows you cannot combat without reinforcement from Jesus.
Imagine what would have happened in these scenarios:
John 2:2 “And both Jesus was called and his disciples, to the marriage.”
Mark 4:36 “And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.”
If Jesus had not been invited in John 2:2; when the wine finished they would have been stranded and that wedding would have been a great flop. Likewise if the disciples didn’t compel Christ to follow them on the trip in Mark 4, they might have drowned at sea.
One thing we must all check daily is our positioning and posture around Christ. Daily fellowship with Jesus is non-negotiable, it is the believer’s life line.
Don’t live dangerously, the devil is always looking around for opportunities to pounce, don’t be caught off-guard.
Always make room for Jesus, no matter what!
