Jesus, Our Savior...Homeless In A Manager

  Emmanuel ...The Promised One.

The Promised One will soon be born again this Christmas.

The Promised One will  be born again as a homeless babe in a manger in a stable because there was no room at the Inn.

Yes, Jesus Christ..The King..The Promised One..The Lord and  Savior of the World...was born homeless to Mary and Joseph on that cold winter night over 2000 years ago.

No room at the Inn… many times do our people in our city and in our country...the land of plenty and the land of opportunity hear those very sad words...Sorry..there is no room at the shelter tonight.

You have used up your time here... we are not   giving you an extension.

If we believe those words that Jesus taught us…”Whatsoever you do for the least of my  brothers that you do for me…” how can we turn our backs and our hearts on those in the homeless situation?  How can we in good  conscience, if there are beds and space          available, say that there is no room at the Inn tonight?

Each and every person, rich and poor, is created in the image of our God.

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, the King of Kings, let us keep in mind He is the  reason for the season…He is HOPE.  He is LOVE.

Each day, we at the Hospitality House try to be hope for the provide love to those that are shunned.

We are called by Christ to be that love to all…

We must not say “Sorry...there is no room at the Inn.”  Instead, we must say.. ’Please come in..we have prepared the way.”
