Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.
- Romans 12:2 NIV
The life cycle of a butterfly is an amazing thing, and it a great representation of the Christian life. From egg to butterfly, each stage shows a unique transformation.
In each stage of our lives, we are continually growing and changing. As we feast upon the word of God and choose to serve Him only, our transformation becomes as beautiful as a butterfly that has emerged from the cocoon. Our minds become renewed and we no longer think like we did before.
"The God Who can change a sinner into a Christian by giving him His life can equally transform the fleshly Christian into a spiritual one by giving him His life more abundantly."
- Watchman Nee
Blessings to you.
