S.A.N.S. Episode 334: Butterfly

When I entered college, the Chrysalis movement began in my area. This three-day retreat for high school students is based upon the transformation of a caterpillar into a Chrysalis to become a butterfly. Since I was too old to attend this weekend, I worked with my Emmaus roommate Dave, the adult version of Chrysalis, to start an accountability group in the Newark area to anyone who went on this weekend. When I heard the Seven Day Jesus song Butterfly, these memories flashed within my mind.

Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! – 2 Corinthians 5:17

The apostle Pail speaks to this transformation in the passage above. Anyone who decides to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ must go through their own spiritual Chrysalis transformation. Colossians 3:1-14 speaks of the necessary steps and mindset needed to leave your former way of life. The hit series Lost produced a similar message in their season one episode Moth to illustrate this change. As you listen to Butterfly, may you seek to become closer to Jesus in 2023.
