“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.” – Mark 2:22 NKJV

“Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient GOD is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?” – Romans 2:4 NLT

The Christian life is one of constant growth, it is a life in which we are continually being transformed and molded into Christlikeness. One of the uncomfortable truths that we don’t like to hear as believers is that every new level that the LORD takes us requires less of us, our baggage, and our wrong habits. I believe one of the purposes of frustration is to get us to go back to GOD and ask Him if there are any areas of our lives that need to be looked into. Oftentimes, there are things that we can’t take with us to the next level where GOD is calling us up to and need to be shed off or repented of. 

The one thing about GOD is that He’s patient with us, and the bridge between a frustrated life and the promised life that GOD has for us is repentance. Sin will always lead to great loss and destruction and the end of it is death so when we turn away from it with the help of the Holy Spirit, we are saving ourselves from humiliation and pain. We often reason and tell GOD that we will change and repent as we go, but I believe according to the Scripture above, that we are only keeping ourselves from moving to the next level. GOD will not pour out His new wine into old wineskins because not only will it destroy us but it will be a waste of His anointing. 

“For godly grief and the pain GOD is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; but worldly grief (the hopeless sorrow that is characteristic of the pagan world) is deadly [breeding and ending in death].” 2 Corinthians 7:10 AMPC. Godly sorrow results from a heart-felt conviction that we have offended GOD by our sin. Such a conviction produces a Godly sorrow in our hearts. This grief causes us to resolve within our hearts that we will, with the help of the Holy Spirit, cease to do evil, and to do good.

Sin will always lead to great loss and destruction and the end of it is death so when we turn away from it with the help of the Holy Spirit, we are saving ourselves from humiliation and pain
