“Ancient Wine,” responds to 1 Corinthians 16:14, “Let all that you do be done in love.”
As in the last supper, a room dimly lit with golden light, our Saviour seated among us- with the head of John upon his chest. He shows us how to live in new covenant of ancient design, from the beginning of the world this moment was intended. An invitation to twelve, and the whole earth, to refocus on love, true love, an old, new way.
As in Song of Songs, the poet refers to love as ‘wine,’ a gift, an expression of wholehearted adoration. The death of our Lord, his blood spilled, was the greatest picture of sacrificial love- and we drink his wine as a remembrance of this priceless act. A refocus, of sorts, unto the truest form our lives can take- doing all things in agape.
