Daily Devotional – Making Room for the Savior

By on December 5, 2019
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Luke 2: 1 -7. The savior of the world came to save her, but He was rejected. Although Jesus didn’t arrive with bright flashing lights, the innkeeper was just caught out. He had the opportunity to make space for His creator and God, but he chose his bed! 

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

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. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

At this time of the year, many people contemplate their actions and attempt to reach out graciously to their fellow man. They hope that the “Christmas spirit” will catch them and help them to be better people all year.

The opportunity lies before all of us. We can all be more loving, kind and generous all year long. We do though need to be ready for it. Look at how the innkeeper missed out on the opportunity to say that Jesus slept upon his bed. For sports memorabilia fans, people would pay top dollar to have the bed that Jesus was born on.

What situations and opportunities do we miss out on because we prefer our “luxuries” or physical pleasures too much?

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, for sending Jesus to us as a baby. His birth speaks to the gracious love that you have for us. I want to be a person that is open and loving, sacrificing my luxuries for other’s necessities. Help me God to love and act on my love for those around me all year long.

In Jesus name
Amen
