The Two Natures

It has been found, through a microscopic examination, that within the body of a caterpillar there is a distinct but undeveloped butterfly. As the butterfly nature developes the caterpillar body must be put off, the crawling, earthly nature gives place to the new and higher life within. "Who shall deliver us from this body of sin and death?" (Romans 7:24). I thank God, Jesus Christ will. Put off the old man with his deeds. The new nature begotten in us by the Holy Ghost is after the image of the second Man, the Lord from Heaven, and will one day rise up in His glorious likeness.
