Greetings for the Advent and Christmas Season

When we are cosied up in our homes, especially on the darker evenings we don’t tend to open up our front door to just anybody.   As ‘Kings of our own castles’ we can be quite choosy, warning cold callers away with stickers. We often like our own space and don’t like intrusions.

As we have now entered into the wonderful Advent season in preparation for Christmas, celebrating our Surprising Saviour’s birth, it seems to me that Jesus calls us to fling open our front doors wide, in welcome! 

No, not to let the autumnal leaves blow in, nor the neighbour’s cat, nor the wintery draft; God calls us to fling wide the doors of our hearts as we await the Saviour’s coming.

Sadly the Innkeeper closed his doors firmly to Jesus, and missed out on the honour it would have afforded him both then and since!  Will we welcome Christ Jesus this Christmas? Are we ready, open and willing to receive whatever our Surprising Saviour wants to do in our lives this Season?

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your past, God loves you, and my deepest prayer is that you will have an incredible, blessed and Joy-filled Christmas season, as you welcome family or friends into your homes and celebrate together. Just make sure there’s room for Jesus!

Have a very Blessed Advent and Christmas Season!
