The Hermit Crab and Me 1

Once upon a time, Jesus was walking with a friend along the beach. Jesus stopped, stooped down and picked up a shell. Smiling, He held it between his thumb and forefinger saying, “there is a creature called the hermit crab. He lives in a second hand home like this. When he molts, he grows too big for his home, and must go and borrow a new home from a sea snail. When he finds an abandoned shell the right size, he moves like lightening into it, because at this molting time, his body becomes soft and totally vulnerable.”

Jesus smiled again, “you have something in common with the hermit crab. You, too, live in a shell; your body is a shell to house your spirit and your soul. When death brings your molting time, you, too, will shed your physical body shell and receive a brand new spiritual shell to house your spirit and your soul for eternity. For the hermit crab, it is just a relief to have a secure bigger home that fits. For you who have accepted my gift, it will mean a brand new world of freedom, exultation and joy!

With love shining from His eyes, Jesus continued, “you have become totally vulnerable to Me; You have outgrown your old ‘man’, and become new! You have accepted my gift of salvation, and have asked Me to be Lord of your life. That is the only requirement that guarantees you will receive your glorious new shell at death, the final molting."

In this life we go through different "molting times" with our physical bodies and equally important, with our souls [mind, will, and emotions]. This molting time of the soul ~ time of changing ~ is sometimes scary as we choose to expose our vulnerability and begin to trust fully on God. 

[the story of Jesus on the beach is fictional;  the reward of accepting Him as Lord of Your life is TRUTH]
