(Say:) Who knows what a butterfly is
before it changes into a butterfly? (Listen for answers.)
Yes, it's a
caterpillar. The word for "change" in the Bible, is from the word
"metamorphosis." It is the same word we use to describe how a
caterpillar becomes a butterfly. The Bible says, "If anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come" 2 Corinthians
5:17. Becoming a new creation is a metamorphosis, or change, that God makes
our hearts and lives when GOD SAVES US.
Can a caterpillar fly? Does it look like
a butterfly? Does it act like a butterfly? No. But when the
caterpillarís metamorphosis, or change happens, it becomes a new creature; it
becomes a butterfly. So you
see, the caterpillar can no longer look or act like a caterpillar, because it
has become an entirely new creature!
