July 25 – Metamorphosis

A little girl took a caterpillar and put it in a metal box. Shutting the lid tight, she went on her way.. The caterpillar spun a tight cocoon inside the box. Sometime later, while the girl was at school, her mother, cleaning the girl’s room, opened the box to see what treasure her little girl had hidden. And of course t instead of an ugly caterpillar, out flew a beautiful butterfly. But as wonderful as metamorphosis is, it cannot compare with the miracle that takes place when Christ comes into a life and transforms a life. Paul the Apostle described it as follows- “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” Someone asks, “but how do I get “in Christ?” First- acknowledge your spiritual need because “All have sinned.” Then ask Christ to come into your life and become your Savior. His promise is- “the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”
