God’s abundant blessings

Wine was part of everyday life and permeates Scripture. New wine is still fermenting and releasing gas. It could burst old brittle wineskins. New ones expand. Jesus came not to patch up people in devotional practices and observances but to offer new life through the reign of God which is about total inner transformation and fullness of life. ‘New wine’ is God’s abundant blessings poured out by the Holy Spirit. How can I expand the ‘wineskin’ of my heart for the ‘new wine’ God is pouring into me?
