This Christmas, make room for Jesus

This Christmas, make room for Jesus

This Christmas, make room for Jesus

Jesus left his glorious throne one day to become human flesh, an embryo, a baby… for unworthy me! Would I leave everything for Him? In return, would I be willing to leave this UNglorious world for Him? Oh yes, many times YES!

I had a very personal dream with Jesus clothed in fine white long clothes and taking me into His arms, calling me by my name and telling me that from then on I would be healed (at around age 6), and so it was. I remember that dream very vividly, and my parents too from what I told them almost 30 years ago; and I cannot deny His existence.  I feel His presence in my life and around me… And coming back to the subject of Christmas: when you try to imagine with this limited humanly mind what Heaven is like (impossible to imagine, I know), but just thinking of how glorious it must be there, and the fact that our Lord Jesus, the King of Kings, the Great I Am, left His divine and infinite glory becoming the smallest possible: an embryo; and born into a poor family, and into a world that had NO room for HIM… now that just blows my mind, and breaks my heart, and fills it with unexplainable joy too.. everything just mixed together into: LOVE, that is what Jesus is.  Jesus knew that He would be born this way, He did not want riches because He already has it all since eternity and for eternity. But He came down to save the world, and to show each and everyone one of us what true love is: leaving everything He had and laying His life down for us… It is a joyful moment to celebrate Jesus’s incarnation now at Christmas just as it had been 2,000 years ago when the angels announced with joy Jesus’s birth, but deep inside I just cannot forget and comprehend my Jesus and His unconditional love for us… and I never will because He is God, the one and true love. How can I not give Him my heart? He is the most perfect gift for me, and in return I will always give Him my heart, now and for eternity!

“She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.” (Luke 2:7 NLT)

Below are a few verses from a beautiful poem written by Christina Rossetti.  I came across it a few weeks ago when I decided to study more about Jesus’s birth as His perfect gift for me… and this poem pretty much summarizes Christmas until I meet Him.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

As you prepare to celebrate Christmas this year, ask yourself this question: Have you left room in your inn for Jesus? (Rick Warren) Remember, that even the wise men looked for Jesus and found Him. You only have to have the will, and He will be found… while there still is time.
