Jesus came to establish a whole new relationship between God and the human family.  Jesus is new and different.  Therefore, the new wine needs new wineskins.

Reconciliation is an opportunity for a new start between God and the repentant sinner.  This offer of life is new and different.

Gracious God, may I rely on the promise of Jesus that I am worthy of a fresh start.  May I celebrate being created in Your image and likeness by sinning now more.
