Every Generation

The Spirit of God’s grace and mercy in every generation is like new wine in old wineskins (Luke 5:27-39). Old traditions simply burst as they make way for new ones. It doesn’t mean that old traditions no longer have use. That would be like disregarding every good thing our parents taught us. In every generation the Spirit will not be confined, limited or defined. As we live our own lives, the old continues to exist within us to support a renewed understanding of God’s grace and mercy every day.
