New Wineskins

None of us here are new
Stale worn-out imitations all
Twelve or twenty, just a few 
Skin-covered sinners following a call.

I'm afraid I'm an old wineskin
Getting filled with new wine
Uptight with all the changing
And the holes I know I'll find.

So let's take all our skin
Layer upon layer
And ask Him to defend
As we hold Him together.

A fresh wineskin we've become
We pour out what we hold
Finding more left than the sum
New skin in place of old.

-For House Church. Inspired by Ah Rim. Based on the words of Jesus.
