Jesus said, “People do not put new wine into old wine skins, otherwise the skins will burst.”
One way we might apply that saying to our lives is to take the old wine skin to stand for a worldly life style, and the new wine as standing for a Christian way of living. There, putting the new wine into the old skin would describe a situation in which we pose as Christians without forsaking the worldly way of living.
The worldly way of living has a slew of sayings.
The worldly soul says, “All’s fair in love and war."
The worldly soul says, “You only go around once, so get all the gusto you can get.”
The worldly soul says, “Clothes make the man.”
You cannot introduce the new wine of Christ into a soul that is an old wine skin of worldly ways.
