No Room: A Glorious Exchange

That firstborn Son has been knocking on doors ever since. He looks for a place to dwell. He seeks an intimate fellowship with the resident. A few open their door and invite Him in. Some make a small effort at hospitality but never intend to let Him stay. Most turn Him away irritated at the interruption.

Still, He knocks, and says, “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2)

When He came among us, all we had to offer was a stable. He, on the other hand, makes ready a mansion for us. That firstborn Son “who knew no sin {became} sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” He died in our place so we could live. (2 Cor 5:14-21) How can anyone refuse such a glorious exchange?

Have you made room in your heart for that firstborn Son?
