Free in Christ Jesus

John 8: 34-36

Recently I visited our local Butterfly Conservatory in Fort Myers, Florida. As we entered the enclosed glass conservatory there were butterflies of different species happily moving about with fluttered wings. It was as though they were singing a song while swirling – We are free, We are free!

It was so peaceful there. My friend and I were caught up in the tranquility of their presence. There were many plants arranged in a beautiful garden with ponds and walkways. There was one area where you could sit on a bench and take it all in

Butterflies have always fascinated me with their metamorphosis. How it is possible for them to change from a creeping caterpillar, moving about from leaf to delectable leaf, then curl up to form a Chrysalis where they are miraculously changed is certainly one of the wonders of God’s world and creation. (Genesis 1, Psalm 139:13-18)

Yet, I couldn’t help think how God promises His most beloved; all of mankind (male and female)  the same opportunity to change into what He has created us to be in the image of His Son. Through the transforming power of His Holy Spirit we have our spirits’and minds’ renewed where everything is possible with God in Christ Jesus.
(2 Corinthians 3:18, Genesis 1:27, Romans 12:2, Romans 8:29, John 3:16, Matthew 19:26)

Then also, in the same way Jesus ascended into the clouds after His resurrection, He will return and we as new creatures in Him will meet Him in the air to be with Him forever more. (Acts 1: 9-11, 1 Corinthians 15: 51-53, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

So as Jesus has promised, the one whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

I am free, I am free ! The Lord has set me free and  I am free, indeed!

Thank You, Jesus!
