How to be authentic
That’s where authenticity comes in. We are created in the image of God. Not in the likeness of God. The image of God reflects how we look and how we act. We reflect who God is when we speak and act in love and truth. The likeness of God looks real but has no depth. It sounds like love but doesn’t feel like love.
The difference between likeness and image is authenticity. How can we be more authentic? Here are three steps I’ve found helpful:
2) Flexible - be ready for God to change you
3) It’s not about you. It’s about how others see you.
Sometimes we do things for our faith because we think we are supposed to do them like some form of Holy checklist. But often God moves in ways we could never predict and we need to be ready. Ready to be the person that God has called and created us to be. And no one else.
