We change like the butterfly

We are like the caterpillar before Christ and the butterfly after we have Christ. Your a new creation in Christ. See 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.

Like the caterpillar it goes through a dramatic change to be a butterfly. Just same when you accept Christ as your personal Savior and have a relationship with Him you become a beautiful new creation. You become covered by the precious blood of Christ. God will no longer see our sins but the precious blood of His Son. The caterpillar represents our sinful ways, the butterfly represents our new life with Christ, the new creation.


I like the quote on the attached image to this blog post. The author is unknown.

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.

Same can apply to us if there was no Christ there would be no change in us, plus we wouldn’t been saved from our sins.This can work if Christ never died for us then we haven’t been saved. The other way to look at it is, if there is no change in you there there is no Christ. We should show evidence we are saved, our fruit will show. The old saying is the Proofs in the Pudding.

If Nothing Ever changed there'd be no butterflies - unknown - (Butterfly)


When people see you do they see you as the caterpillar or the butterfly?
