Butterflies

butterflyTherefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17

The company logo of Creative Communications is the butterfly. I see it so much that I take it for granted, but on this Easter Day, I look at it with fresh eyes and see the miracle it represents.

The butterfly is truly a “new creation” that comes out of a cocoon (a tomb of sorts) after a period of time. What once was a scrawny, wormy like creature that was only able to crawl on the ground is now a colorful, beautiful, glorious creation that can fly to great heights.

What a wonderful picture of what happened through the resurrection of Christ. We who were once lowly creatures who roamed the earth in sin are now made new beings that are filled with his life and are able to soar for him spiritually speaking in this life and on the Last Day, we will fly to be with him in heaven.

The wonderful news of Easter is that because Christ went through this transformation from death on the cross, to three days in the tomb, to resurrection life, we too will rise from death and the grave to a glorious eternal life.

Every day is now an Easter Day, a day for us to celebrate that we are now God’s “butterflies,” so to speak, able to flit from place to place to spread the good news that Jesus is alive and we will be alive with him forevermore.

Creative Communications is just one small part of this picture as it spreads this good news through packages of church resources sent across the globe. But the greater impact is the new life that each of us can share in what we say and do in the name of our risen Christ to all we meet every day.
