Here is another insight from the butterfly. When a butterfly turns from an egg to a caterpillar to a chrysalis to a butterfly, it is just becoming what it always was. You could put a mold around the egg and prevent it from growing, but the natural course of life for the egg is to turn into a caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly. When it does this, it is just the natural outworking of what it already is.
The DNA in an egg is the same DNA that is in the caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly. If a caterpillar committed a crime, the butterfly could be charged and go to jail. It is the same critter.
To fail to change is to masquerade as something you are not. You are a changed person. God has given you a new heart. Let it out.
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NKJV) You are the righteousness of God in Christ. Let it out. Be who you are.
