“Nor do people put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”
I loved new Privates. They come into your squad or platoon all bright-eyed, anxious to learn, ready to be molded into a part of the team (I also felt the same way about brand new Lieutenants). They were raw, a blank slate just waiting for you to make that lasting impression. As we start the New Year, let’s present ourselves as new privates or LTs to God, ready and willing to learn new things, effectively integrating ourselves into Kingdom-oriented teams, eager to follow His next command.
Call to Action: Pray that God will give you a fresh desire to love and serve Him.
LT – A lieutenant (abbreviated Lt, LT, Lieut and similar) is a junior commissioned officer in the armed forces, fire services, police and other organizations of many nations.
