Butterflies were not always the beautiful creatures we see flying around our gardens. They started life as caterpillars, then moved to the cocoon stage, finally emerging as what they were meant to be by their Creator. Scientists call this metamorphosis. What an exciting process. The Bible tells us of an even greater transformation. When we confess the reality of our natural tendency to do wrong, which God calls sin, (since God has told us that there is “none righteous, no not one”) and invite Christ into our lives as Savior, a miraculous spiritual metamorphosis takes place. Paul the Apostle describes this, writing, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things pass away, behold all things become new.” Unfortunately, many are still wrapped in their cocoon of unbelief. But when we believe with our hearts on the Lord Jesus, He makes something beautiful of our lives.
