As we enter the second week of advent, we will shift our focus to the innkeeper, as we examine His Coming in our Hearts, Daily. Initially, the innkeeper didn’t have room for Jesus, which raises the question, “Do we make room in our hearts for Christ on a daily basis?”
This can be scene as a two-part question – a salvation question for people who have never entered into relationship with Jesus – and a discipleship question for those who are in relationship with Jesus, “are you making room for Him on a daily basis – and not just fitting Him in when there is time.”
But many of us are scared to be alone with God. Being busy excites us. Accomplishing things helps us feel important. We think there are people who need us now and things that we have to get done ASAP. We may thrive on the adrenaline rush that comes with responding to the urgent.
When we make room for Jesus, opening up our hearts to Him, then we learn to enjoy His peace. The Silent Night is a Holy Night as we discover that “All is calm, all is bright, round yon virgin, mother and child.”
How does Jesus make a difference in your life on a daily basis?
