It is not Christmas. However, this lyric from “Joy To The World”, is found to be very relevant during Holy Week: “Let every heart, prepare Him room…” Holy Week focuses on the ultimate sacrifice Christ made on the cross and his victory achieved in the grave. His resurrection and His defeat of sin should be the primary reason why we must make room for Him.
Friends, we must prepare Him room. There is so much in the world vying for our attention and affection. In order to ensure that Christ is in the proper place in our lives, we have to “prepare Him room”. The junk and clutter must be cleared out: Worry. Anxiety. Comparison. Distractions. Discouragement. Discontentment. Strife. Envy. It all must go!
Submitting our hearts to Him, the very place from where the wellspring of life flows, prepares room for Him. Preparing room for Him gives Him glory!
Doesn’t the Lord deserve the space in our hearts?! Isn’t He worthy of all our praise?! Shouldn’t we bow to His glory?! Clear the pathway of your heart, the Master commands attention! Let’s transform our mind-the Creator of the Universe needs His space! And He desires to take residence in YOU, hallelujah!
Making room for the Lord, makes Him center stage of our lives. It all begins with our hearts, then it heads to our minds, and manifests into action.
Let every heart, prepare Him room…
Peace and Blessings
