The disappearance of a caterpillar into its cocoon and its subsequent transformation into a butterfly is both a symbol of the death and resurrection of Christ and the change that we undergo when accept Christ as Lord and Saviour. Some cultures display butterflies at funerals and memorials to symbolize the hope of resurrection from the dead.

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 says this:

"So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body."

Wow! This is my prayer for you! May you break out of your cocoon with these promises firmly entrenched in your heart!

Here’s another relevant “butterfly” Scripture. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says this:
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
May you truly transform to a new creation as you rise up to all God has called you to!

May you be “Butterfly’d!”
