10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
DADs...This verse picks up in the middle of a thought begun in verse 9, regarding Christians setting aside the "old self" of worldly, sinful behaviors.
In contrast with the "old self", the believer is a new creation “reMade” and should therefore “live" differently.
Paul adds that the "new self" is constantly “refreshed” through “knowledge" of the one who created it: Christ.
“Knowledge" which comes from Christ is noted throughout Colossians as an important part of the Christian life.
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
DADs…are You growing in the knowledge of God TODAY?
DADs... take off your "old self"…
look to your "new self"
and be “remade” and “refreshed"
through the knowledge of our Heavenly Father!
“Get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you! So…C’mon men...
