"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 mysterious. It is in their design to undergo a complete transformation that was written within them all along. How they experience life is forever changed. To me, this has always been a beautiful picture of being made new in Christ. Who we once were is gone and by God's grace, we are on a journey of renewal; daily being conformed more into the image of Christ, growing in maturity, and learning to love God with everything. It is a process and happening from the 'inside-out'. To say that anyone in Christ is a new creation - what amazing grace! God is sanctifying us.
May this necklace be an encouragement that you are a new creation in Christ and are continually "being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory" (2 Corin. 3:18).
