Live forward to the renewal creation

An arthropod goes through a process of desquamation of the old shell which is called exoskeleton.
Exoskeleton is the old outter shell coming off or peeling away from the body of the arthropod. So the process starts with the anthropod already fully grown and at some point the old shell starts to come off. Thus the insect leaves the old behind and walks away renewed.
Although, thru the covenant of Christ we ALL have been delivered from ALL dominion of darkness like the animal kingdom (Ref: Colossians 1:13/Acts 10). But the concept "leaving the old behind" and "living forward being renewed" can still be juxtaposed us as well.
For thru Jesus Christ we still live in our bodies but we leave the old person behind and take on the new creation/person within ourselves God desires for us to produce the fruit he has planned for each of us since his plans are always good (Jeremiah 29:11).
So the journey starts with the same body but by faith still know living for Christ the old unbearing fruitless comes off and behold we live forward to the renewal creation God provides living a life with Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ-Amen
