For i have become like one who fell asleep in the tanning bed...
It is really simple. What happens to leather when it is dried out? No, i mean really dried out. Like the top of the back seat in a seventy-six Plymouth Valiant. It dry rots. It becomes hard, brittle, cracked. Not the kind of thing you want to put wine in.
This is us. This is us without Jesus.
"But days are coming when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. But no one puts a patch of unshrunken cloth on an old garment, for its patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear becomes worse.Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the wineskins burst and the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are destroyed. But they put new wine into new wineskins and both are preserved.” Matt 9
You who have been baptized into his death through water and into his life through the coming of the Holy Spirit are a new creation. You are a new wineskin and he is filling with living water, with the fountain of his blood of the new covenant! Keep coming to the fountain in prayer and meditation on his Word. Cuz the world is burning and full of smoke.
