It needs to show

ImageYesterday, I went to the McWane science center here in Birmingham, AL with my mom and friends. It’s an awesome place to visit for a child with a scientific mind, which I was (and still am… just a big kid). I also had my first IMAX movie experience, watching the Flight of the Butterflies on the larger than life screen. It was awe inspiring – both the screen and the butterflies.

As we watched the chrysalis where the once caterpillar was enclosed as it was being transformed into a butterfly, a comment was made that it would wake up one day a new “person”. The Bible says in 2 Cor 5:17 (ESV), “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. ” Unlike the butterfly, the outward physical manifestation may not be that different. We don’t sprout wings and begin to fly. It is still important though that through a relationship with Christ we are changed more into His likeness – it needs to show.

Lord, I pray that as a Christian, I look like you, and not like the world…
