“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
We need to be transparent and walking in the light. Jesus’ strongest condemnation was for hypocrites.
Hiding things brings disease. Light is required for growth. Confession/prayer bring healing. Candor (speaking directly and truthfully) creates community while hypocrisy kills community.
There is real security in God’s love. When we believe the truth of God’s Word, His love and His care for me, then we become secure in Christ. When our security is in Christ, real transparency can happen.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light we have fellowship one with another.” 1 John 1:7a
The light shines through us (transparency). The closer we are to Christ, the more secure we are in Him and the more we can be open and honest with our lives. We have nothing to hide.
Our worth is based on Christ’s love for us, not our performance.
