Bible says, "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new
creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come" (2 Corinthians 5:17-18).
If you haven't trusted in Jesus, the Bible
says you are enemies of God; your sin separates you from his love. But
when you trust and follow Jesus, you are "in Christ." This
means you are reconciled, your
friendship with God is restored or renewed. And when this happens, the Bible
says that you become a new creature---a new creation. The word in the
Bible that describes this
change is the same word that describes the change that happens to a
caterpillar when it becomes a butterfly! This is why the symbol of the
butterfly represents new
life to Christians.
Today we will make butterflies to
remember that when we are in Christ, we are new creatures!
