A New Wineskin Declaration
Today, I am stepping across the line. I’ve made my choice and my decision is settled. I’m abandoning the old wineskin and trading in for a new one. New in Jesus Christ is better. I’m going God’s way, and there’s no turning back!
I will live the rest of my life holding on to the new wineskin, so the New Wine and Lordship of Jesus Christ can be poured into my life. I will use my life to celebrate His presence, rejoicing in the excitement and joy that Jesus brings. I won’t be captivated by old wineskin ways of thinking, old wineskin habits, old wineskin religion or anything that isn’t useful to a living relationship with Jesus.
Since my past has been forgiven, and I have a purpose for living and a home awaiting in heaven, I refuse to waste any more time or energy on shallow living, thoughtless doing, useless regretting, hurtful resenting, faithless worrying or resisting any new move of God. Instead, I will be like a new wineskin, by allowing God to have His way with me, putting to death my selfish pursuits and goals, leaving only the desire to be His hand extended. I know what matters most and I’ll give it all I’ve got. I’ll do the best I can, always ready to contain His outpouring.
To my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I say – However, Whenever, Wherever, and Whatever You ask me to do, my answer is yes! Wherever the New-Wine-filled-life leads and whatever the cost I’m ready. Anytime. Anywhere. Anyway. Whatever it takes Lord; Whatever it takes because the NEW is better than the OLD!
