Be an everyday Christian living in integrity and authenticity.
In an episode of Standing Together, hosts Claire Worth and Fergus Scarfe talk about authenticity as Christians. Do we live an authentic Christian life when we are alone? Or do we have a different way of life outside our churches? Are we putting our trust in the Lord or in the things that we have? Claire revealed how God taught her to be an everyday Christian.
“I feel like God was just revealing things about where we’ve maybe gone wrong a lot of the times,” Claire shared. “For me it certainly was, where have I gone wrong, what have I put my hope in, what have I put my trust in. And a lot of the time, it wasn’t Him, it was the things in my life rather than the One who rules my life, the One who is above and beyond all things.”
Outside our churches, outside the stage, outside our platforms as pastors, worship leaders, teachers, who are we in Christ? God wants us to live an authentic Christian life every day no matter where we might be.
“When we leave from a platform, we have a level of responsibility to ensure that we live this life of authenticity.”
Fergus then emphasized that one’s authenticity can be seen when we are not in front of others. It can be seen in our everyday lives as spouses, as parents, as a neighbor.
“Authenticity isn’t the thing you put out in the front, it’s not the stage face. It’s get up in the morning face, it’s the supermarket face, it’s when you actually fill your car with petrol face. It’s what does your neighbor thinks of you.”
