IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK WE FIND CHRIST

Then I said, "Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book, it is written of Me—To do Your will, O God" (Hebrews 10:7).

VIEW: TRAILER – NO ROOM IN THE INN

My wife and I have always been concerned about where the baby Jesus was born. Foremost, there wasn't even Room in the Inn” for this precious child. After all, wasn't He God's Son and our Redeemer? One would think that when a king is born, they would wrap him in silk and surround him with the pleasant smell of perfumes and spices. Nothing about this environment revealed the real and great significance of that newborn baby. 

Though He is the King of Kings, He was born in a stable filled with the smell of livestock. The fulfillment of the prophecy was satisfied in this stable. Thus, preparing the way for our salvation

On the human side, we say, "Not fair!" On the spiritual side, God preordained it, prophesied about it, and fulfilled according to His plan. Mary and Joseph endured the trials surrounding Jesus' birth. Their obedience brought forth the Savior of the World! Believers today and for Eternity reap the benefits of their faithfulness to God.

It certainly was interesting that when God came to visit the earth, there was no room for Him in the inn. This stable event was a precursor of His entire life. Even today, some people refuse to make room for Him in their lives. They have place and time for just about everything but Him — unfortunately, Jesus’ position is outside the heart of man.

Sometimes we feel there is “No Room in the Inn” for us. Our life takes a direction we had not planned. The trials of life consume us to the point of wanting to give up. A Five-Star Hotel is not in the budget. We begin listening to all the lies, bombarding our minds, and even questioning our salvation. We might not understand something now; however, at the end of the trial, there is a shining bright light awaiting our arrival. 

The good news is God is for us and not against us. He can use any situation in life to bless us. For example, because Mary and Joseph endured the “No Room in the Inn” trial, our Savior was born to die on the CROSS for WHOSOEVER would in faith believe and receive His gift of eternal life. Although salvation is free, we must repent of our sins and give God control over our lives. Our sojourn begins at our conversion, and He has much to do through us in this lifetime.
