This Butterfly Pendant is a wearable reminder of 2 Corinthians 5:17 which states, “If anyone is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation; the old has passed away and behold, all things are new.”
We live in the country and can see wonderful things in nature every day. I see butterflies, spiders, caterpillars, and many other beautiful creatures. When I look at caterpillars crawling around like ‘worms,’ they are so vulnerable to all the birds and other animals that would like them for a meal. It is incredible to me that this lowly creature weaves a cocoon around itself and then after a few days emerges as a beautiful butterfly.
This is also our story in Christ. I sign my signature with 2 Corinthians 5:17 which states, “If anyone is in Christ Jesus, they are a new creation, the old has passed and behold, the new has come. We were like that caterpillar that was so helpless but now as a butterfly, we have been transformed to soar above all the things that used to keep us down. That’s why I’m going to start making lots of butterflies.
Jesus Christ provides a relationship with the Father and eternal life through His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead (Romans 5:10).
In Romans 10:9, the Word promises, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” If you have not yet begun your personal relationship with God, understand that the One who created you loves you no matter who you are or what you’ve done.
You can tell Him in your own words or use this simple prayer:
Lord Jesus, I ask You to forgive my sins and save me from eternal separation from God. By faith, I accept Your work and death on the cross as sufficient payment for my sins. Thank You for providing the way for me to know You and to have a relationship with my Heavenly Father. Through faith in You, I have eternal life. Thank You also for hearing my prayers and loving me unconditionally. In Jesus’ name, amen.
