Mark 2:22 Daily Devotion - April 2 2023

New Wine

Today’s Daily Devotion

April 2, 2023

By Khai Samante

Do we fully grasp why God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world? When God poured new wine into the world by sending Jesus, the Pharisees of Jesus’ day did not embrace Him. Instead, they attempted to trap Him in order to prove He was wrong and they were correct. The Pharisees practiced spiritual disciplines diligently, but they did not have an intimate relationship with God. Jesus compared their futile efforts to achieve righteousness through human qualifications to sewing a new patch of unshrunken cloth onto a well-worn garment, which would result in an even larger tear.

We have the option of being controlled by our former self-life — proud and self-righteous — or walking in spirit and truth and being controlled by the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Selecting the latter will result in only acceptable works of Christ’s own righteousness.

“No one pours new wine into old wineskins.”
Mark 2:22

Lord, I pray that I may die to my old self on a daily basis and choose to live in freedom as a result of your grace.
