Will you allow Jesus to be born in your heart today? Allow His victorious resurrection to happen inside you every day - Daily Bible Reflections March 15,2015

THE NEW MANGER
 
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” – John 3:16
 
       Have you been to a stable or a pig pen? Imagine a place where animals that haven’t had a bath for a long time stay. Where do they poop? You guessed it. So you have to be careful with your steps, lest you find something sticking to your shoes.
       Jesus was born as a fragile and innocent Infant in a place like this. God could’ve chosen Jesus to be born in a castle, with many nannies and a royal crib. But He didn’t.
       This, to me, is how much God loves us. He abandoned divinity to embrace humanity and sent His only Son to be born in a dirty, filthy place.
       Our hearts are like this manger with its stench, dirt, sins, regrets, hurts and dark secrets. Still, Jesus can be born here too, if we let Him. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done, how we’ve sinned, or however dirty we feel. Jesus can handle it. He wants our hearts to be His new manger.
       And when Jesus lives inside us, He can turn our mess into miracles, our pain into purpose, our languish into laughter. Carlo Lorenzo (carloflorenzo@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Will you allow Jesus to be born in your heart today? Allow His victorious resurrection to happen inside you every day.
 
Thank You, Father, for sending Jesus to us and saving us.
 
St. Louise de Marillac, pray for us.
