Oh, Jesus, I’m awed by how You want an intimate spiritual relationship with me. To think that this new self is being (present participle, continually being) renewed in knowledge after your image blows my mind with gratitude. I love You, Lord, and I thank You in your name above all names, by your authority that is greater than any other, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.” (Colossians 3: 9-10 ESV)
