Imagine a caterpillar that spends its life trying to be the prettiest most popular caterpillar around, or trying to be the most successful by gaining money and caterpillar riches? The point of the caterpillar's existence isn't to become beautiful, popular or successful as a caterpillar. It's to die as a caterpillar and be born as a butterfly. So with us. You're not on this planet to look the prettiest, become the most popular, successful or wealthy. This whole life is a caterpillar life. You're here to exchange it for a butterfly's life; to die to the old life, so that you can live the greater life. That means letting go of this caterpillar life, dying to self, the flesh, to ego, dying to the caterpillar life, giving instead of taking, letting go, decreasing. Don't lose sight of why you're here. This is what it's all about. Don't get caught up in caterpillar stuff. Look beyond, press beyond, let go of that caterpillar life. Enter the realm of the butterfly so that you can become that beautiful, heavenly creature that God calls you to become in Messiah.
From Message #608 - The Butterfly's Child
Ask the Lord to show you an area of your life that you need to die to. Let Him transform you.
