New Wine In Old Wineskins

Tonight I asked Robb a question. "why do we love bondage.. we hold on to sin... we hold on to Law... we hold on to ourselves.. why is it so hard to throw all of that away and behold our precious savior?? why?"

Here was his response -

"...wineskins were used as containers for liquid. If filled with new wine, old skins lost elasticity and burst when the wine fermented. The point is that the new teaching of the grace of Christ cannot be contained within the old forms of the law (John 1:17)."—Ryrie Study Notes
