adjective \ə-ˈthen-tik, ȯ-\

Authentic: Getting real with God, myself and others.
What does it mean to be authentic? To be the real deal, the genuine article? Many of us feel like we are just going through the motions in our lives as mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, friends… and Christians. We do the things we think we should, or we try to, but sometimes it feels like an act - not an act of worship and love.
Let’s open God’s Word together and consider what it means to be “seen,” truly seen by the Creator God. As we catch a glimpse of His Glory, we will also see ourselves reflected in His eyes. What does God see when He looks into our lives? What pains and secret hurts, what fears and frustrations, what secret sins that continue to assail? There is a secure place, purchased by His great Love for us; here we will find the freedom we so desperately long for. We will be known and we will know His Great Love in new ways.
Will you come, to seek the Master’s face and find yourself remade? Will you come just as you are, and find the love and grace you need? Will you come clinging to the things you know you need to put down, and trust His Love to help? Will you come?
