They had returned to Bethlehem to be registered for the census, Joseph and Mary his wife and while they were there the days were completed for her to be delivered. The inn’s were full and they had no room to dwell in so were out in a stable with the livestock .
Luke 2:6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.
Fast forward to Jesus ministry for a moment and hear his words.
Matthew 8:20” But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.”
It was His choice to not dwell in a palace or a mansion – though He was and is the King of kings and Lord of Lords. However what He has prepared for us – those who believe in Him is more than we could ever hope for or imagine. The prayer of my heart is that all who read these words will come to Him in faith.
John 14:2 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.
