The inn was full, fires were lit, food was warm and beds prepared. Everyone was trying to ride out the storm of Roman oppression. What possibly could a little knock on the door do? What difference could it bring?
Think about it for a moment. If those inside the inn had chosen to open the door, angels would have been inside and not out. The glory of the Lord would have been revealed to them! New hope would have come! Think of what would have happened, think of the gladness that would have come into people’s hearts. How everything around them would have been changed forever in an instant if they had just opened the door!
This Christmas, open your heart in a new way to God. Ask Him to come in in His fullness for your life.
Please, this Christmas, remember it’s time to pray.
