No turning back...Spread your wings!
And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
The butterfly does not return to the caterpillar state. When the butterfly emerges from its chrysalis it flies which is something it couldn’t do before! The butterfly also drinks sweet nectar instead of gorging on leaves.
Are you a new creation in Christ still trying to gorge on leaves, like the caterpillar from your past life? Are they choking you? Wouldn’t you rather drink the sweet nectar from Gods word? Are you a new creation in Christ still trying to crawl back inside the chrysalis to live as you once lived? Even if you could go back in time, leaves would no longer nourish you, and the torn chrysalis would no longer protect you. Why? Because God has transformed you into a new creation. Now you have the blessed privilege and opportunity to soar in His power and do His work on this planet. The old is passed away, the old life is no longer, the old you has been buried with Christ and the new you has been raised with Him? So spread your wings into their full, beautiful glory. It’s time to fly.
