Tomorrow begins the season of Advent: the anticipation of the incarnation of our Lord and Savior as Man.
The men, women and children of Wiser Lake Chapel will be sharing writing daily on a new theme:
“There was no room for them in the inn, but how can I make room for Him?”
Join us over the next 25 days in thinking about how we too might open the door to the coming of Christ into our lives. Please feel free to share these meditations with your friends and family.
The manger and the cross standing at the two extremities of the Saviour’s earthly life seem most fit and congruous the one to the other, lie is to wear through life a peasant’s garb; he is to associate with fishermen; the lowly are to be his disciples; the cold mountains are often to be his only bed; he is to say, “Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head;” nothing, therefore, could be more fitting than that in his season of humiliation, when he laid aside all his glory, and took upon himself the form of a servant, and condescended even to the meanest estate, he should be laid in a manger.
~Charles Spurgeon from his sermon: “No Room for Christ in the Inn”
