Why the gospel is like wine

The gospel is like wine. You can age it in French oak barrels and get excellent flavor or store it in plastic containers and get no favor!

There's only one gospel. The problem is many see and present the gospel in the framework of the ten commandments. Those commandments were entombed in a coffin for a reason (i.e. the ark of the covenant, which contained the two stone slabs with the ten commandments; the word 'ark' is the same for 'coffin'! You can read more about that here).

So understand that the framework of the law is death. But the framework of the gospel of Jesus Christ is life!

It's time we understood that the forgiveness of sins Jesus offered is not just final, its finished. This day know how fully and freely your sins are forgiven and maybe even forgive yourself; there is nothing you can add to His work... but there's certainly more you can receive!

To Life and Life more abundantly!

Jesus said "I came that they may have life and have it to the full." John 10:10
