“Therefore, if anyone is in christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
The butterfly is perhaps one of the most unique and beautiful creatures in all of God’s splendid world - particularly when you consider its amazing story. A little worm is wrapped up inside a tight cocoon of transformation only to burst forth as a completely different creature. It leaves its old life behind and takes joyful flight into the world. Simply a miracle!
This is our story in Jesus, too! We’re wrapped in His robe or righteousness when we embrace His gift of salvation and transformation. We’re made into a new creation through His grace and sacrifice and given a new life of joy and freedom in Him. The old is gone. The new is here!
