By Greg Laurie
Joy to the world! The Lord is come. Let earth receive her King. Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room.
This Christmas, don’t miss the point of celebrating Christmas. Don’t be like the innkeeper, who missed Jesus because he was too busy (see Luke 2). Make time for the Lord. Don’t be like King Herod, who was too afraid to let Christ rule his life (see Matthew 2). Turn your heart over to Christ. Finally, don’t run your life like the Roman Empire, who missed Christmas because other gods took the place of Christ in their lives. Allow nothing else to take the place of worshipping Jesus Christ.
On Christmas morning we will unwrap our Christmas presents, but eventually the novelty of it all will wear off. The present that was once so precious to you will end up stuffed in the closet or handed off to someone else. A newer version of your latest gadget will arrive that has more megapixels, or is smaller, or faster, or has better battery life. In time, your Christmas gifts will mostly be forgotten. But God has given us the ultimate gift—the gift of His Son Jesus Christ.
Don’t miss Christmas this year. As Watts and Handel once wrote, “Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room.”
