DAILY READINGS: Nehemiah 9:1-38; Zechariah 5:1-6:15; Revelation 14:1-20

[They] laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7
And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. Luke 14:22

For the lowly Son of God, there was no room in the inn. Yet through His death and finished work, He has made room in heaven for all who will trust Him. Today, there is still room for you! John records two contrasting statements—“He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12, NKJV). —Pete Smith

Oh, come to my heart, Lord Jesus!
There is room in my heart for Thee. —Emily E. S. Elliott
