The problems and issues we face on a daily basis are such that man has not the power to resolve. There is no faking it until you make it so why pretend. Man needs the Word of God in him (Mathew 4:4, Like 4:4). We are in the midst of a spiritual warfare between God and Satan, which cannot be fought behind a mask.
Take Off The Mask
God did not say - your fake has made you whole. He said "your Faith has made you whole (Mark 5:34, Luke 17:19). Faith resides in the spirit realm. It cannot be seen with the naked eye. One cannot pretend to have faith. Faith is not an admitting of words or performance of works. It cannot be masked. Faith is the final reality that underlies all outward manifestations and change that we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1). "God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). One can only do this if he or she owns the truth about himself, which is he is nothing without Christ. Transparency is key.
Be Transparent - God Knows All Variations of You
God knows all of your personalities, emotions, and behaviors. He knows your past, present, and future. He knows what you are thinking and how you are feeling. "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:15-16). Jesus is asking us just like He did with the man at the pool of Bethesda, 'Do you want to be made whole? (John 5:2-8). Take off the mask and let the healing begin.
Someone Needs To Know The Real You
In order to build healthy relationships, or bear one another burdens, we need transparency. Transparent people are simple people who are very clear in what they say and are not afraid to share their testimony, or how they feel. People not only want to know how is it that you cope with all of the issues you face, or how is it that you overcome your situation and circumstances, they need to know. When we are true to ourselves and others, we, and others, may be healed. Believers, your real opens the door to extend to others God's truth. The truth God wants everyone to know is that sorrow will turn to Joy. Jesus said "I have told you this, so that you might have peace in your hearts because of me. While you are in the world, you will have to suffer. But cheer up! I have defeated the world (John 16:33).
