Audio: Luke 2 Christmas Musings
“And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. Luke 2:6-7 ESV
Luke 2 gives us the wonderful account of our Lord’s birth. This wonderfully beautiful account is often read and enjoyed by during the Christmas season.
Although the events in this chapter occurred some two thousand years ago, a thoughtful reading of the passage will show that our modern world is very much like the world that our Lord Jesus Christ was born into.
“There was no place for them in the inn” then and there is still no place for Him today. He was rejected then, and He is still rejected now.
There were a few exceptions though: Anna was among those “waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem” Luke 2:38 and Simeon was “waiting for the consolation of Israel” Luke 2:25.
There were exceptions then, and there are exceptions now! How about you? Have you room for Jesus?
