    Default Old Wine in New Wine Skins

    Mark 2 :
    The Patches and Wineskins
    21"No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results. 22"No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins."
    Cross References
    Matthew 9:17
    Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."

    Matthew Henry explanation ~
    9:14-17 John was at this time in prison; his circumstances, his character, and the nature of the message he was sent to deliver, led those who were peculiarly attached to him, to keep frequent fasts. Christ referred them to John's testimony of him, Joh 3:29. Though there is no doubt that Jesus and his disciples lived in a spare and frugal manner, it would be improper for his disciples to fast while they had the comfort of his presence. When he is with them, all is well. The presence of the sun makes day, and its absence produces night. Our Lord further reminded them of common rules of prudence. It was not usual to take a piece of rough woolen cloth, which had never been prepared, to join to an old garment, for it would not join well with the soft, old garment, but would tear it further, and the rent would be made worse. Nor would men put new wine into old leathern bottles, which were going to decay, and would be liable to burst from the fermenting of the wine; but putting the new wine into strong, new, skin bottles, both would be preserved. Great caution and prudence are necessary, that young converts may not receive gloomy and forbidding ideas of the service of our Lord; but duties are to be urged as they are able to bear them.

    How I see it.

    No one puts a new inner man inside an old lifestyle or else he will be ruined. But a new inner man is put into a new lifestyle and he will be preserved in Christ.

    What always come to my mind is when someone has known the Lord,
    then slips away. When they come to their senses, and repents, we know
    the Lord has forgiven. I am thinking of a Church leader of some sort.
    Wouldn't it take time for that person to be renewed in spirit before filled
    with the 'new wine' ( spirit ) and given a position to serve?

    It would take a renewal as you stated and then the new wine skin can
    hold the new wine.
