Wonderful New Bodies


She sees the entire life cycle.

I have a friend who raises butterflies.

Getting a leaf with only an egg on it, she places it in a netted cage.

Later, a caterpillar becomes the only resident.

The caterpillar will then form a chrysalis, and go into hiding…

At the proper time set by God, a beautiful butterfly emerges!

I had the privilege of being with her one day as she released a butterfly from a netted cage.

At first, it remained on her hand, then it flew out into the big, giant sky in the sunshine.

Caterpillars don’t have very good eyesight.

Butterflies do.

A caterpillar must stay near the ground, creeping along.

A butterfly can soar to the heights!

One day, those who believe in Jesus will have new bodies:

For we know that when this tent we live in now is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forevermore, made for us by God Himself and not by human hands.

—2 Corinthians 5:1

Right now, our eyesight and understanding are so limited.

We are bound here to this earthly life.

There will come a time when we will soar to Jesus in glorious freedom to live forever in Heaven!
