This Sunday, May 22 our Children’s Church kids will be learning about Nicodemus and butterflies. Nicodemus had a hard time seeing Jesus as the Messiah, the savior who was prophesied about in the Old Testament. Jesus told him, “You must be born again.” Like a caterpillar who breaks through the imprisoned dark cocoon to become a butterfly fluttering freely about in the light of day, Nicodemus had to break through his darkness in order to see the Light of the world. The imagery of being born again is magnificent when you think about it. From confinement to freedom, from darkness to light, God draws us to a new life. Pray for our children that as they explore the meaning of life in Christ, they will discover a new life indeed!
