TOPIC: DO YOU HAVE A ROOM FOR JESUS?
Read Matthew 26:17-19
17 Now on the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?”
18 And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.”
19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed (Matthew 27:59, 60)
Many believers in Christ love to sing this song “what shall I render (3ce), to you oh Lord, I will praise you oh Lord and shout hallelujah, what shall I render to You oh Lord? Yes! Good to sing and give God our praise, there are more things to give also. Our Lord Jesus Christ had a challenge of where to keep the Passover with His disciples. Don’t forget He didn’t build any personal house not for inability but was more interested in building the kingdom of God in our hearts.
Though foxes have holes, the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head (Mt. 8:20). Jesus wants to live in our hearts to reach out to the rest of the world. That explains why He stands at the door of our hearts and He is knocking (Rev. 3:20). Let us break all those barriers which may not allow us welcome the Saviour into our hearts and our homes. Like Zacchaeus, Mary and Martha abandoned the world to welcome Jesus into their lives and homes. Let us surrender our hearts and our belongings to Him, today. Has anyone given Him anything that He will not repay?
Consider these lives.
Firstly, the man who surrendered his house to Jesus for the historic Passover. Secondly, Peter who gave his boat for Jesus to address the audience and the little boy who gave to Jesus the fish and bread which were received and blessed by Jesus for His guests. They must have been blessed tremendously. “Eccl. 11:1 says “Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days” In as much as you will surrender your money, time, talents, properties, etc., you must also surrender your precious life to Jesus Christ for you to gain eternal life. May you not live here in vain.
- Lord, forgive all I deliberately owe You.
- Lord, help me to surrender my all to You now!
- Father, deliver church leaders who are too money conscious than being heavenly conscious.
