Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” (Matthew 9;17).
The balance between presentation and influence. Changing a generation while ourselves being changed. Holding on to tradition while releasing something new, history and legacy, preserving both through keeping a fresh flow of wine available. After all what is the point of holding onto something if it’s not a conduit of freshness and revival. While we value our apostolic heritage we must watch ourselves that the wineskin does not go dry and crack while focusing on self presevation can often lead to staleness and barrenness. Fresh wine keeps the old wineskins in good shape, making it flexible and all the while keeping its a clean vessel for the great and new things the Lord has in store for the generation to come.
