SCRIPTURE

Mark 2:18-22 18 Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. And people came and said to him, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” 19 And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that natural viagra day. 21 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the cialis when to take old, and a worse tear  is made. 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.”

BIG IDEA

Jesus is like a Master of Feasts. He hasn’t come to make us miserable through fasting; He’s come to make us merry through feasting. Jesus is also like a Loving Husband. He graciously provides for, protects, cherishes, and nourishes those who belong to Him through the gospel. Furthermore, Jesus is like an Accomplished Tailor. He is not simply going to patch up the holes we’ve got in our clothes because of our sin—only for them to be torn again and again. Rather, He has come to give us completely new clothes through His life so we can stand before God the Father guiltless and righteous. And finally, Jesus is like a Generous Winemaker. He brings something radically different than religion (the gospel) based on something completely opposite of our works (His grace). How? The key is in verse 20 of Mark chapter two. “The days will come when the buy levitra online paypal bridegroom is taken away.” Jesus, the bridegroom, cialis vs viagra cost will have to leave the party so we can be brought in. On the cross, Jesus http://pharmacyonline-cialis.com/ was forsaken by His Father as a sinner so he could give us a wedding feast as the Savior.
