Topic: New Wine, New Bottle [DCLM Daily Manna 17 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]

Text: Matthew 9:14-26 (KJV)

Key Verse: “No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rest is made worse” (Matthew 9:16).

MESSAGE:

John Bunyan once wrote, “The happy man was born in the city of Regeneration, in the parish of Repentance unto life. He was educated in the School of Obedience; he works at the trade of Diligence and does many jobs of Self-denial. He owns a large estate in the country of Christian Contentment and wears the plain garments of humility. He breakfasts every morning on spiritual prayer and sups every evening on the same. He also has meat to eat that the world knows not of. He has gospel submission in his conduct, due order in his affection, sound peace in his conscience, sanctifying love in his soul, real divinity in his breast, true humility in his heart, the Redeemer’s yoke on his neck, the world under his feet, and a crown of glory over his head.” Bunyan’s description of the happy man is the picture of a Christian whose life is transformed by grace.

Using the illustration of garments and wine, Jesus told His disciples that there must be a clear difference between old things and new ones. Drawing heavily on the cultural practices of the Jews, He explained that old cloths would not go with new pieces neither would old bottles serve with new wine.

The christian life is a brand new relationship with the heavenly Father because of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The death of Jesus on the cross brought forgiveness and pardon for our sins and opportunities of experiencing new relationship with the Lord. In the new life, new rules guide our walk in newness of life and we begin to do all things to the glory of God. That is why in the new life, miracles become our portion every day. Such was the experiences of the woman and the girl in our passage today. May such an experience be yours too in Jesus’ Name!

Thought For The Day: The cross of Jesus offers new and better life for all.

The Bible In One Year: Numbers 29-30

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
