I joined the Made e-course,
an exploration of God-centered creativity.
I am starting my first page which is about
freedom and safety.
I have to confess that both my safety and freedom
are in the Word of God.
This morning I read from Luke 5:33-39:
"No one tears a piece from a new cloak to patch an old one.
Otherwise he will tear the new
and the piece from it will not match the old cloak.
Likewise, no one pours new wine
into old wineskins.
Otherwise the new wine will burst the skins,
and it will be spilled,
and the skins will be ruined.
Rather, NEW WINE MUST BE POURED
INTO FRESH WINESKINS."
I believe God's Word is always new, ever fresh,
eternally alive and exciting.
However it does not always appear that way, does it?
That is because it is put into OLD WINESKINS!
I believe that we all need to find fresh new ways of
understanding, listening, obeying, teaching, loving.
We can't do the same old, same old.
When I went to Europe,
I noticed the wonderful churches were
filled with older people.
How do we reach the younger generation?
How do we, as Jesus asked us to do,
"Put out into deep water and lower your nets
for a catch?" Luke 5:4
These days, what are our children into?
Twitter, Google +, Facebook, You Tube, etc.
People of today have a new way of interacting,
a different way of learning, and there are
myriads of ways to reach out!
It is exciting to see, experience and use
these new frontiers!
We all should be winemakers,
filled with the Spirit of God,
excited about what God wants us to do
and HOW He wants us do it!
Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!
