Today I’m going to talk about faith and authenticity. You may have noticed my blog’s tagline: Faithfully Authentic. Two words I’ve based my life on.
The thing is, you can’t really be faithful to Christ and fully authentic to yourself. Just like you can’t be truly faithful without being utterly sincere. They’re concepts that must work together, hand-in-hand.
And the world. It will fight and try to get you to compromise one or the other.
Growing up, my faith in Christ was constantly challenged by the hypocrisy in Church. It wasn’t until the past couple of years when I finally realized those in ministry are still humans. Just like the disciples, Peter and Judas.
That being said, no human is without sin, fear, or ulterior motives. It’s something I have to remind myself on the regular.
I refuse to feel insecure about who I am in Christ just because I don’t put on airs when it comes to my faith.
To quote Childish Gambino: Stay woke.
Keep your eyes on Christ and don’t let the world and its bs change you.
