Fitting Christ in

A Roman government census was being taken in Bethlehem. The town was overcrowded. So Christ Jesus was born in a stable. He was put in a crib that held hay for the animals. "There was no room ... in the inn."  Luke 2:7.

This part of the story—no room for the Saviour of mankind even as a baby in crowded Bethlehem—strikes a familiar and ironic chord for Christians. The ways of the world haven't changed. There still seems to be precious little room made for the Christ-spirit.
