Make Room for Jesus | Joe Duke
The story of that very first Christmas includes chilling words for any family trying to deliver a baby: “There’s no room for you.” Truth is, that’s not the last time that sentiment would be spoken in Jesus’ direction. Life wants to crowd out Jesus. The pace. The noise. The distractions. All of it conspires to push Jesus to the fringe of our lives. Jesus is a gift to the world—or better, THE gift to the world. A gift that can easily remain boxed and wrapped if we become distracted by the noisy alternatives.
