For a caterpillar to become a beautiful butterfly; the caterpillars old body must die and the new body forms inside a protective shell, the chrysalis, inside a cocoon. It must escape the chrysalis to complete its transformation. When you accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and living saviour you will be transformed by grace through the renewal of your mind. It is an active process of dying to self, and shedding of dead cells. Through maturation you will become a new creation; a bold butterfly bursting forth from the inside, who can spread their wings and fly.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
