“She brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7)
What a joyous, but sad day! After finally arriving in Bethlehem, Joseph and Mary were met with bad news—the inn was already full of guests, and there was no room for them. Turned away, they found shelter among the animals, and it was there that Jesus was born.
Think about that—there was no room for the long-expected Savior, the Son of God who is destined to rule the world in righteousness. You might say, “If I had been there in Bethlehem that night, I would have opened my home to Jesus.” But let me ask you a personal question: Have you opened your heart’s door to let the Savior in? Or is your heart so full of other things that you have no room for Jesus Christ?
Part of the problem is that the world today is so occupied with entertainment, business, sports, politics and religion that Jesus is simply crowded out. We’re busy and distracted with a million different things.
But it’s also true that the human heart is, by nature, sinful. When Jesus begins to shine the light of holiness into our lives, our faults are revealed and we become uncomfortable. During His life on earth, as long as He was healing the sick and doing miracles, large crowds followed Him. But when Jesus started to challenge empty religion and show that He alone is the way to Heaven, He was “despised and rejected of men” (Isaiah 53:3). On the day of His death the people cried, “Away with Him, crucify Him” (John 19:15).
Jesus, who declared “I am the light of the world,” explains why we resist Him: “Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved” (John 8:12; 3:19-20).
How is it with you? Do you get uncomfortable when you think about standing before God some day? Have you tried to distance yourself from thinking about your sin? Have you crowded Jesus out of your thoughts and life?
Here’s the good news! Jesus came into the world as God’s gift, to save us from our sins (Matthew 1:21). He didn’t just stand at a distance and tell us about our problem: He embraced us and did something about it! On the cross, He absorbed the punishment that our sin deserved, died in our place, and rose again so that we can live forever with Him.
It’s time to stop hiding from God. It’s time to recognize that the things you’ve been filling your life with only leave you empty and unfulfilled. It’s time to make room for Jesus!
Turn to Him, put your trust in Him, and you will receive not only forgiveness of sins, but also a new life of peace and joy in living with God—both now and forever. Accept Him as your Lord and Savior today!
“God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:11-12)

How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
