A caterpiller crawls on its belly on the ground and moves slowly, feeding on plants. It sheds its skin several times and finally through an amazing metamorphosis turns into a chrysalis where it grows strong wings and legs. When the transformation is complete, the creature molts one last time and a beautiful butterfly emerges from its cocoon.

I think this represents the stages we go through as christians. When we are saved we are transformed into a new creation. We keep shedding our old selves until our spirit is set finally set free from all that holds us down.

God has given us each great beauty. Let us not creep and crawl but today let us fly high and soar with wings like eagles. We are made in the likeness of God.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Cor 5:17.
