Luke 2:1-7, 8-15 – NIV
The baby Jesus is typically not seen in the manger until Christmas Eve, unless you’re talking about public Nativities. The past few years there seem to have been many stolen out of various nativities around the country. Why are people drawn to steal them? But more important, where is baby Jesus in your home, in your life, in your work? Do you keep him hidden away? Do you let him out to be seen in your life?
Baby Jesus was stolen from our nativity a couple years ago. Fortunately, the community landscaper found him in a bush and brought him back. He didn’t speak much English, but I managed to understand he was glad to find Jesus and realized he came from our home. Do others see Jesus in your home, in your life? How can we expect to be freed from sin, guilt and shame if we won’t even let the baby Jesus be seen in us? Is there room in your life for Jesus right now? What might need to change to make a little room for him?
