What ‘new’ thing is God doing in you? What new thing is he doing through you?
In Matthew 9:16-17, Jesus speaks of new wine skins that are needed in order to contain the new wine.
Here Jesus is referring to something completely new and fresh and in order to contain it, a new wineskin is needed.
Some of the ‘new’ God is doing requires a completely new and fresh perspective to contain.
Let us not throw out all of the old however. Consider the ‘ancient’ paths. Learn from those who’ve gone before.
Seek a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit. Ask God to give you a fresh perspective and a new understanding, that you may receive the new thing he is doing in and through you. Learn from what you have learnt. Gain insight and understanding from those who’ve gone before us and let the Lord lead you into what he has next for you.
Be trained for the kingdom of heaven by bringing out of the treasure in you both the old and the new.
