Outside the inn, strangers from afar gathered to view the greatest miracle of Love. The strangers were of low standing among men, but the strangers found a place in the midst of animals. The strangers were busy with their responsibilities in the dark of night, but the strangers walked away having seen glory shine about them. The strangers were set apart from the mainstream society of people, but the strangers received good tidings of great joy. The strangers came to know what it was like to be surrounded by a multitude of heavenly host and hearing them praising God in the highest and declaring peace and good will to men on earth, to all people.
The greatest miracle of Love entered the world, outside the inn, and when the faithful priest with spiritual eyes and a just and devout heart held this miracle in his arms, he recognized that God’s Word was true and sure. Peace settled over him as he held this miracle of salvation in his arms. Words of affirmation, hope and prophecy flowed from his mouth to all people.

The greatest miracle of Love entered the world, outside the inn, and when the wise men came on royal commission yet with spiritual eyes saw this miracle of Love, they recognized God’s Word was true and sure.

So many, many years ago, this miracle of Love was born outside the inn. Yet today, many feel as if we, too, are outside the inn. There may be more of us living outside of elite and privileged society than in or maybe more of us living outside of a home of love than in. Some of us may find ourselves among the lowly of men and more welcomed in the midst of animals. Some of us may be faithful servants ready to be gathered home and some of us may be faithful servants still working fervently and working without turning to the right or to the left. Some of us may be among the rich and powerful, capable of offering gifts fit for royalty. Still, the greatest miracle of Love entered the world, outside the inn, to bring redemption to all people, to you and to me. God’s Word is true and sure. There is no need to wait for hope for Hope is alive and in the midst of us.
The greatest miracle of Love entered the world, outside the inn.
He’s my shelter and protector.
