Friday, December 16th. Revelation 3:20

(This week’s devotions come from “Grace for the Moment” by Max Lucado.)

 

“Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.” Revelation 3:20

 

Some of the saddest words are earth are, “We don’t have room for you.”

 

Jesus knew the sound of those words.  He was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said, “We don’t have room for you.”

 

And when he was hung on the cross, wasn’t the message one of absolute rejection?  We don’t have room for you.

 

Even today Jesus is given the same treatment.  He goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter…

 

Every so often, he is welcomed.  Someone throws open the door of his or her heart and invites him to stay.  And to that person Jesus gives this great promise:  “In my father’s house are many rooms…”

 

What a delightful promise he makes us!  We make room for him in our hearts, and makes room for us in his house.

 

Let us pray:  Dear Lord, please come into our hearts in new and powerful ways.  We know they are cluttered with junk that takes too much space but still there is room for you.  Come into our hearts and help us clean out what doesn’t belong there.  Come into our hearts and make us new.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

    Wonderful! Right on. We are studying “Why?” by Adam Hamilton who expresses the same sentiments. Jesus makes room for us. Do we make room for him? We are God’s people; that’s why we are here! Wow! What a wonderful thing.
