Transparency is an important part of the Christian walk. It protects us from legalism and from putting on a facade. If people know who we really are deep down on the inside what would they see? Would they see the same image we project to the outside or something different.
Being honest with ourselves and with each other can be a scary, vulnerable thing. In church we can sing, preach, and do other things but our hearts can be far removed from the actions. We can teach Bible class, lead in studies and coordinate church events, and still have hell in our hearts. How many of us have lived or know of people who come to the church carrying the facade of sainthood?
It’s so easy to wear the mask of holiness but much more difficult to live our hearts. This year, lets be more transparent about things. Let’s be more honest to ourselves and each other. Let’s take on the vulnerability being open with God gives us.
