Oil and water

Oil and water can never mix
Old covenant and new covenant 
Moses and Jesus
Sinai and Zion
Stone and flesh
Can never mesh.

Oil and vinegar shaken
Seems to produce reward for the effort
In the shaking, in the stirring.
But in a short while 
The separation begins. 
Got to keep shaking, 
Got to maintain effort,
Brings frustration.

Law and grace
Cannot be mingled
Cannot become one
Cannot produce life
A barren marriage going through the motions
Nae children.

Water turns into wine
New wine
All the work done by Jesus
Oil and wine can never mix
Why would you want to ?.
