TODAY’S READING: Matthew 9:16-17
- No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

In todays Bible reading, Jesus emphasized the need to use the right container for the appropriate liquid in order to preserve both of them.
Can you imagine filling the tyre of a car with fuel instead of air and travelling with it?. You can be sure the car and its passengers would be roasted on the way. Both content and container would be lost.
Children of God are like tyres and the Holy Spirit is the air that should fill them up for effective performance. This is why Ephesians 5:18 says put in the right content the Holy Spirit into your body. If He is in you, alcohol and other sins such as anger, malice, lies, cheating et cetera will not be found in you. lf you want the tyres of a car to function properly, you have to gauge them daily.
When you spend time in Gods presence, you are gauging your spiritual tyres so that you can withstand any rough terrain and weight as you are journey in life. If you want to have a smooth ride, spend more time with the Holy Spirit.
KEY POINT: How often do you gauge your tyre?
