Butterflies and Believers

on March 12, 2023

2 Corinthians 5:17– “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; Behold, the new has come.” 

In elementary school, children learn about the metamorphosis of caterpillars into butterflies. In high school, I did a year-long science project of collecting different kinds of butterflies, mounting and labeling them on a display board. However, it wasn’t until recently that I became aware of the intricacies of this amazing process.

The caterpillar actually liquefies when it forms its chrysalis. It redistributes itself into a different pattern to form a new creation. Likewise, when we are born again, the old is melted away and we are reborn (transformed).

A transformation is actually a change in appearance, nature, character, or form. This process IN US is only possible by the work of the Holy Spirit as explained in 2 Corinthians. 

A metamorphosis takes place.

By the grace of God, we are transformed!
