Make Some Room

Are you making enough room for Christ in your life? Years ago when our kids were young, we would gather with my brother and sister and their families and pile in at my parent’s house for the holidays. My mom’s policy was—and still is today—“we will make room.” What that looks like to me is sleeping on an air mattress on the kitchen floor under the table. I remember like it was yesterday because that mattress had a pin-hole leak, and in the middle of the night the heaviest person on the mattress touched the cold floor first—that was me. The “we will make room” policy was great in theory, but practically, that was a rough night. The heart behind the policy was to do whatever was needed to be done so we could all be together. The willingness to make more room for Christ in our lives should be in our hearts, but often we make little to no room for Him. Let me ask you, what could you do to make more room for Christ? Your schedule is full and the demands aren’t going away, but the Lord deserves more room in our lives. God has made room for us in heaven, so do whatever it takes to make room for Him in your life here and now. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” Make more room for Jesus!
