Some of the saddest words on earth are: We don’t have room for you! Sorry, I don’t have room for you on the team. I don’t have room for you in my heart. We don’t have room for your type here.
Jesus was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said, We don’t have room for you. When the religious leaders accused him of blasphemy saying, We don’t have room for a self-proclaimed Messiah! Even today Jesus goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter. But more often than not he hears the words of the Bethlehem innkeeper…. sorry, too crowded. I don’t have room for you.
But Jesus says I have ample space for you! “Trust in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms” (John 14:2). We make room for him in our hearts, and he makes room for us in his house!
