New wine

“New wine is poured into fresh skins” (Mark 2:22). New, fresh: this is the work of God. This isn’t something that we can do for ourselves or give to ourselves. This must be done for us. It must be given to us. All the glory belongs to the Lord! “The Son of Man has authority over the day of worship” (Mark 2:28). It’s not so much the activity of worship that’s important. It’s the Saviour whom we worship. He’s the One who makes worship so important. We worship Him.
“Jesus … was deeply hurt because their minds were closed” (Mark 3:5). “Whoever curses the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. He is guilty of an everlasting sin” (Mark 3:29). “Whoever does what God wants is My brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:35). These are challenging verses, They call us to be open to the life-changing love of Christ, to draw back from the evil way of unbelief and disobedience, to allow the Lord to change us into “new creatures In Christ Jesus” and inspire us to live as “a new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
