What does it mean to be authentic? Authenticity is about realness. It is not about expressing our opinions all the time, but rather how real we are. It’s hard work being someone you're not supposed to be. What if the missing piece of someones salvation lies within you? But because you never took off the mask they'd never know Jesus. When you rid yourself of hypocrisy and feel the freedom of authenticity, God begins to use you in ways you didn’t know were possible.
