Matthew 9:17 “Neither do men 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.”
Wine makers require new wineskins free of residual fermentation which would spoil the wine. New wine poured into old wineskins will burst under pressure because the dregs hurry the process too quickly.

Do not put the new in the old or mix the new with the old because all will be lost.

The new wine is the saving Word of Jesus Christ.
We are like wineskins and need to ask the Lord to forgive us and cleanse us. After we turn away from all our sins, he will make us new. Then the Holy Spirit can fill us.

Ask forgiveness for your sins and turn away from them. The Lord will then fill us with the new wine of the Holy Spirit.
