From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. | 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
We are all on a journey of being transformed into who God has called us to be. We are not the same person we were when we came to Christ; we are new and being made new. Everyday Heirloom’s hand-sculpted butterfly wing serves as a tangible reminder of this truth: as Christians, we have received a new identity. The pattern on the wing holds eight segments and a sequence of eight circles along its top edge (in ancient Hebrew, eight represents new beginnings). The open segments incorporate the wearer in the composition of the design as the pendant rests over her heart. In this way, the wearer completes the design. It is through the lens of becoming that Christ sees us as who we truly are.
Only in Christ do we become our true selves. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
The greatest evidence of our faith is a transformed life – it’s how we are living our everyday lives in our God-given identity as citizens of heaven; as image-bearers; as co-heirs with Christ; as daughters; as the Beloved.
As you journey with Christ in your own becoming story, may you be hidden in Christ, and all the while, may you metamorphose from what was into what is and what is going to be. May your wings unfold in the newness of Christ and take flight in your truest identity as his daughter.
Beloved, you are becoming.
