A Picture in
Read I Corinthians 15:53-58
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. Foe what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4:14
For every caterpillar, the time comes when the urge to eat and grow subsides and he instinctively begins to form a chrysalis around himself. The chrysalis hardens and you’d think for all the world that the caterpillar was dead. Bit one spring morning, the life inside the chrysalis begins to writhe, the top cracks open, and a beautifully formed butterfly emerges. For hours, it will stand stretching and drying its wings, moving them slowly up and down, up and down. And then, before you know it, the butterfly glides aloft, effortlessly riding the currents of the air, alighting on flower after gorgeous flower, as if to show off its vivid colors to the bright blossoms.
Somehow, the miracle of the butterfly never loses its fascination for us. Perhaps because the butterfly is a living parable of the promise of the resurrection. Who would believe that the caterpillar becomes a butterfly unless he had seen it? If we can accept that, how can we deny that death can be transformed into life? God created a picture in nature of not only the new birth but also the hope of the resurrection… of a complete change of mortality of this life into the immortality of life with God. What a hope we have! Let’s celebrate it. Let’s share it. Because He lives, I can face tomorrow !
