Stuart Crosson, Senior Pastor at Hope Church, Dunedin, shared this ‘New Wine’ by Brooke Fraser with us last night as part of the devotion because he senses it to be a prophetic song for the church today.

“I love the humility of Brooke’s lyric, ‘I came here with nothing, but all you have given me, Jesus bring new wine out of me.’

“Jesus describes the blessing that flows when we are poor in spirit (Matthew 5: 3)

“This humbling begins in prayer.

“This humility is the way of Christ that leads us to the cross and beyond.

“I believe God is saying to his church in NZ to reclaim her spiritual authority. Paradoxically in begins with humility.”
