2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
Lil Man and Big boy observed these caterpillars for several days and watched as they grew and began forming their chrysalis. The day that they emerged as beautiful butterflies was an amazing day. They watched them fly around for hours and pointed out their bright, vibrant colors. "How can a fuzzy black caterpillar becomes such a beautiful butterfly!?" my son asked. Only by the perfect design and plan of God are these things possible. Only by the grace, mercy, and forgiveness of God can our black hearts become cleansed and white. When we accept Jesus Christ, a change must take place deep in our hearts. We must deny sin daily and walk in the footsteps of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Only then can we fly free as a beautiful butterfly without the weight of sin.
