Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room

“And she have birth to a firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7

The Bible does not mention an innkeeper in the Christmas story, it simply mentions the fact that the inn was full. But the fact that most Christmas story productions feature an innkeeper is reasonable. Someone had to tell Mary and Joseph that the inn was full. I wonder if we sometimes communicate the same thing to the Lord; “There’s no room for You!” By “no room” I mean no room in our hearts. Sometimes our hearts can become so crowded with other things there’s no room to treasure Jesus. Thus the old Christmas hymn calls us to prepare Him room. Jesus is worthy of your whole heart. Jesus told us we are to love God with all of our heart, all of our soul, and all of our mind (Matt. 22:37).

Spend a few moments decluttering your heart today. Lay aside sins, misguided priorities, and anything else that lessens your affection for Christ. Then ask the Lord to make Himself at home in your heart. Ask Him to fill up your life. I promise that if you do this, Christmas will become much more meaningful! Prepare Him room! Worship Him with all of your heart!
