Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
~ Psalm 139: 23-24
We want people to shoot straight with us... to be real. Right? We want authenticity and there is no better way to find it, than to start with ourselves.
First, stay real with God. He already knows your story - but you have to confess those hidden things to Him daily if you want to be authentic.
Second, just be yourself. No "super-christians" are needed. Just be a man who strives to get it right - doing the best you can.
Today is the day to stand up as an authentic man of God. Do you have the courage to pray this Psalm and ask God to search your soul? It's a great starting point.
