Skins

Q: Why don’t your disciples fast like John’s disciples and the Pharisees do?

Jesus: no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins. Mark 2:18,22

Jesus came to introduce an entirely new context for followers of God to interact with Him and others. The wine of His new covenant, grace, requires a new container, the law of love. When we try to pour grace into legalism, both are lost.

Lord, let the skin I’m in flex as Your grace expands.
