10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
Colossians 3:10

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,
Colossians 1:9–10

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!
DADs...
“Get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you! So…C’mon men...
Suit Up!

DADs…Just as Christ is "the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15):
15 "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation"
believers are being remade into the likeness of Jesus. 

Paul notes elsewhere that Christ is "the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4):
4 "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."

Jesus is also fully involved in creation (Colossians 1:16): 
16 "For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him."

The gospel of John 1:3 reveals: 
"All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” 

The believer is a new person increasingly designed to grow more like Christ, the one who created us.

DADs…a quick read…but deep meaning for YOU and for me!
Today and everyday we are reMADE through Christ!
Its time to Suit Up!

DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!
So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
To follow the “Suit Up” Movement…
