The process of metamorphosis is a wonder to behold. To appreciate the complexity within, the indwelling information, timing devices & structure formation is mind sparkling. Wisdom within nature before nature began.
On the one hand a gradual process, on the other instantaneous before time for a time. We can see God’s transforming power in the life of His people also. With the coming of Christ the old dissipates & the new begins & the gospel spreads out across the land & islands to all peoples.
God’s wisdom already present long ago but being revealed in glorious formation & transformation.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Cor 5:17-18.
