New Frontiers

“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." Luke 5:36-38

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 we went to Europe a long time ago, I noticed the magnificent 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, Instagram, You Tube, Tiktok, Discord, etc. Young 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! Because of the pandemic, we were forced to bring our masses, community gatherings, teachings and meetings online. So many new opportunities and possibilities! But whether or not we have the capability or not, we should all be winemakers, filled with the Spirit of God, excited about what God wants us to do and HOW He wants us do it!
