New Wine

Brooke Ligertwood

And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins will be destroyed. Instead new wine is poured into new wineskins.” Mark 2:22

Ripe grapes are crushed and the juice pressed out of them to create wine. It’s in the crushing and pressing that the transformation takes place into juice that is then placed into containers and allowed to ferment.

During the fermentation process, the juice “increases” and stretches the wineskin as needed. An old wineskin would simply break open because it was already stretched to its maximum capacity.

Only Jesus can pour NEW WINE into us without us breaking open. Only He knows how much pressure and stretching we can handle. That’s why we yield to HIS careful hand.

In the crushing

In the pressing

You are making new wine

In the soil

I now surrender

You are breaking new ground

So I yield to You into Your careful hand

When I trust You I don't need to understand

Make me Your vessel

Make me an offering

Make me whatever You want me to be

I came here with nothing

But all You have given me

Jesus bring new wine out of me

'Cause where there is new wine

There is new power

There is new freedom

And the Kingdom is here

I lay down my old flames

To carry Your new fire today

It means we're getting back on the altar.

We're saying we surrender everything, Lord

Jesus bring new wine out of me
