Authenticity: it’s something we all crave, at some level – the opportunity to be real, to be genuine. Often, it’s the salt and light – the authenticity – in others that draws us to them, isn’t it? They stand out, they seem different, and we want some of what they have.
So how do we exhibit that authenticity in a world that is trying to shut Christians up? In Leah’s words, how can we be a stand-out Christian in a shut-up world?
Leah shares approximately 70% of Americans identify as Christians, but does their walk match their talk? More importantly, does ours? What the world really needs is authentic Christians – salt and light. The world is doing their part to make sure those of us who identify as Christians are shut up, but God has called us to stand out!
