Hillsong Worship – New Wine

It’s so easy to lose our passion, our wonder, our heart for anything these days. Our lives are so full, consumed by multimedia and it seems that every year, we keep taking “fast-paced lifestyles” to new levels! When was the last time you stopped to take a breath? When was the last time you re-evaluated your routine? When was last time you got back on the altar to surrender every new thing? When was the last time you produced new wine?

But why “wine?” you may ask. Wine is such a significant symbol throughout scripture. Just think about communion and Jesus’ first miracle. Check out this link for all the meanings of wine in the Bible.

Hillsong Worship’s “New Wine” is a call back to the altar. A call back to surrender. Matthew 9:17 says, “Neither is new wine put into old wineskins. If it is, the skins burst and the wine is spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.” So if we are truly born again, we cannot live the way we always have and expect to be able to carry a fresh anointing from God.

With lyrics like,”Where there is new wine, there is new power; there is new freedom” the song becomes an anthem for a new revelation of Christ to run through our veins and flow out of us like new wine.

I personally love the lines, “In the crushing, In the pressing, You are making new wine.” Sometimes we are being refined and it’s hard. We don’t always see the end result and we feel like we are just going through hell for no reason. I love the fresh revelation in this song. New wine comes from pressure and crushing of our old selves in the same way that the Lord refines us through fire,

VERSE 1:
In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making new wine
In the soil I now surrender
You are breaking new ground

PRE-CHORUS:
So I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don’t need to understand

CHORUS:
Make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus bring new wine out of me

VERSE 2:
In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making new wine
In the soil I now surrender
You are breaking new ground

VERSE TAG:
You are breaking new ground

BRIDGE:
Where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
The Kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today
