Topic Groups: CHRISTMAS, SALVATION
Luke 2:7 She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Does our modern world have room for Jesus this Christmas?
Some see Christmas simply as a time to have drunken parties. This is how they honour the birth of the Lord.
Others are caught up in the commercialisation of Christmas and see it just as a time for receiving gifts – forgetting the greatest gift of all – God’s gift of his Son.
Others have allowed the purpose of the day that commemorates the birth of our Lord to be forgotten. Jesus’ place is usurped by other ‘heroes’. Santa, Rudolph the reindeer, Frosty the snowman and Tiny Tim.
So this Christmas and indeed in your life in general: have you made room for Jesus?
