The Inn Keeper Who Found Room (A First Person Account)12/16/06

The Inn Keeper has become an intrcal part of the Christmas story The inn keeper who found roomto many. Although the Bible never even mentions an Inn Keeper there quite likely could have been one. In fact I think that many of us in our busy western society could really relate with this harried man who had more demands on him then he could possibly fulfill.

Today in my first person account of the Inn Keeper I imagine what it would be like if that Inn Keeper who had no room Jesus in his inn had finally found room in his heart for the Babe of Bethlehem.

Key Passage: Luke 2:1-7

Steps to ChristOur cat Cuddles.Our cat, Cuddles, and I don’t always understand each other. I’m a dog lover more than a cat lover. This causes misunderstandings between us. Sometimes Cuddles thinks I’m “out to get her” when I’m really trying to care for her needs and make her happy. I’m trying to gain a greater knowledge of cats so we can enjoy each other’s company more. In a similar way we need to get to know God. We are different from Him and don’t always understand His actions. We may get upset at God over something He did or didn’t do. But when we gain a knowledge of God we find that He’s trying to take care of us and make us happy and fulfilled.

This is the 10th in our series, “Steps to Christ: How to be ready for Jesus to come.” Today we’ll discuss two ways we gain a knowledge of God. Then, after the Christmas, when we finish up this series we’ll discuss a third way–prayer.

Steps to ChristI’m sure you’ve seen those garden hoses with little holes all over them. When it’s connected to an open spigot it just can’t contain all it’s water so it blesses all the plants around it with little streams of life giving water shooting in all directions. In a similar way “wherever the life of God is in the hearts of men, it will flow out to others in love and blessing.”–Steps to Christ, p.52

This is the ninth in our series, “Steps to Christ: How to be ready for Jesus to come.” Last week we switched gears from talking about how to come to Christ to how to live with Christ. Our topic today is, “The Work and the Life”. To discover the what the work and the life is we need not go any farther than the examination of Jesus’ work and life. The study of Jesus’ work and life is an important and deep topic which we’ll only scratch the surface of today.

This Sermon Series is based on the book Steps to Christ by Ellen White.
