“Let every heart prepare Him room.”
Is there room in our heart and lives for Jesus the Christ?
Or is it the same cry as before Jesus was born- “There is no room.”?
4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room available for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7
This is currently my nativity scene. By now it usually has Jesus in the manger, Mary, Joseph, the Shepherd, the wisemen, and the animals in and around the stable. My family & I usually read a scripture as each figurine is placed. This year, this has been postponed for many reasons (many valid), but as I continue to pass by this empty nativity scene it does cause me to pause and ponder the question is there room for Jesus in my heart & life even when I am busy? Let’s not take for granted the miracle and gift of the birth of our Savior because what a different world it would be without God’s love to us through Christ Jesus.
⭐️Take a moment today and spend time with God in prayer-prepare your heart for the reason for Christmas-Jesus the Christ, the Savior of the world-born for all people.
🎁If you have not received the gift of God, His Son Jesus the Christ, and would like to prepare your heart for Him, may these scriptures guide you in receiving Him as your one and only Lord & Savior:
⭐️Acknowledge your need for a Savior and confess your sins to God
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
(Jesus said) “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
⭐️Accept The Gift of Jesus the Christ.
For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-10
⭐️ Turn from your sinful ways and follow God’s way by faith in Jesus.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves Me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
⭐️Rejoice if you have accepted the gift of Jesus Christ as your one & only Lord and Savior!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-

Almost time to make another New Year's Resolution.It's time now to Break Through The Dark....& Shine Bright! End this year with a brighter and healthier future by turning away from your darkness (i.e.: worry, fear, doubt, unhealthy choices, insecurity, exuses, etc..) and allowing the Light of Christ to shine brightly in you as you choose to follow God's Way not your own. Join me as we train physically together & train spiritually together with a weekly scripture theme. If we focus only on our physical being or only on our spiritual being we are only 1/2 healthier. May we each seek to be a clean lantern so the Light of Christ shines brightly in us-helping us to break through the dark and see His plans for us are good!
