Putting New Wine into New Wineskins

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


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
