Re:Verse passage – Colossians 3:10-17 (day five)  “and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.”‭‭ Colossians‬ ‭3:10‬
What is the result of “putting on the new self” (verse 10)? It’s certainly to learn and understand who Jesus is.  But, there is more.  The goal is also for each believer to become more of the person he/she was created to be. Humans were created in the image of God.  When sin entered the world thru Adam and Eve, mankind no longer could be completely who God had created them to be- sin tainted and marred the image. But through the life and work of Jesus, we can see that image again, and be transformed into Christ likeness- the untainted and original image.  One of the many promises of the gospel is that when we put our faith and trust in Jesus, we can become more like Him, and thus become more of the person we were created by God to be.  We can be authentic “ Jesus image-bearers”.
