"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!" 2 Corinthians 5:17
Butterflies have always been so fascinating to me. They are beautiful and also very mysterious. It is in their making to suddenly know when it's time to undergo a complete transformation that was hidden within them all along. Life, as they knew it, has completely changed and it will never be the same again. To me, it is such a beautiful picture of being made new in Christ. The way we once lived is no more and by God's grace, we are transformed from the inside-out. To say that anyone in Christ is a new creation - what wondrous love and grace!
May this necklace be a reminder that you are no longer who you once were, but have been made new in Christ and are continually "being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory" (2 Corin. 3:18).
