Putting New Wine into New Wineskins

Mark 2:1-22, NRSV
Psalm 103:6-14, NRSV

Reflections

If Christ is the answer, what are the real questions? Does God speak my language? How can we live out and share the gospel without domesticating the new wine?

  • Period of Epiphany
  • Baptism of Jesus
  • We need God for things we cannot do
  • We can’t fit God into whatever system/scheme we have
  • “New Wine” of forgiveness
  • Danger of over-realized and under-realized promises
  • Baptism is a way God to pledge transformation in you
