The One Room Home/The Home of Many Rooms

In Advent we prepare a place for the Christ to come and abide within and in the world anew.

At his birth his shelter was minimal, to say the least.  One 'room' - whether it was a stable or a hollow in the rock - to house Emmanuel, God With Us.

At the end of his mortal ministry, Jesus said he was going ahead to prepare rooms for us.  "In my Father's home there are many rooms.  If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And if I'm on my way to get your room ready, I'll come back and get you so you can live where I live."  John 14: 2,3

I want to live where Jesus lives - and for the time being, I want Jesus to live where I live, in my very being.  Welcome, Jesus ... welcome home, until that day when your home is mine as well.
