New Wineskins

by Andrew Forrest

What Jesus is doing won’t fit in the old categories. The Kingdom of God is not something with which I accessorize or decorate my house; it is the priceless work of art that causes me to pull down all the old walls so I can build a new place all around it.

21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

Mark 2:21-22
