About All Things New Series
We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Luke 5:38 NASB
But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.
The word ‘new’ here means new as to time, not as to quality. It reminds us of the manna God gave Israel. It was new every day. If Israel tried to save it, it rotted. It was given for ONE day, that day, no future day and no past day (except for the Sabbath, of course). It was a picture of God’s intention that every day He is new and original.
The wine of the Spirit is new, and we must receive Him new today, right now, in this time frame. This day calls for the new. This situation is ever new. This ‘time’ is a new wine outpouring of God.
