Many of us believers are still struggling to show the real us. We have this fear that forbids us to tell all the truth about us. This makes us have either of these two, a whitewashed tomb or hypocrisy, and skeletons in the closet or too many hidden truths. Hypocrisy comes when we cover up our sins while secrecy of sins comes when we hide the truth that needs to be addressed.

As true believers of Christ, we’d rather be exposed in the light of truth than to hide our sins in the dark just as the evil wants. And to help us clean our own skeletons in the closet here are some points as our guide:

1. Be Real – God can’t bless what you hide. It is very simple, first of all, you need to accept and be true to yourself. It is said that no one’s perfect, everyone has his or her own weakness but what can you do about this weakness? Do you use it to paralyze yourself or you expose it so God can help you with that part? God wants to heal you, He wants to forgive you, and He wants to bless you but first, you have to be real and admit that you need Him.

Proverbs 38:13 “Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”

Some things you need to be real about:

• Financial Situation

• Emotions

• Love for the Lord

• Capacity

• Sickness

• Reality

• Sin

2. Repent – God can’t set you free from what you don’t confess. Repent and do not go back to the sin that you admitted. If you do not give up your sins you will just be in a cycle of returning to something that holds you from being free. Sometimes we want to clean up our closet of skeletons but we do not give repentance to our sins, which is why we tend to be chained with these sins.

Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

3. Put Your Identity in Jesus – When you don’t know who you are, remember whose you are. A true Christian is identifiable. They are the ones who proudly say that they want to be clean and set apart for the Lord. A believer of Christ is the ones who do not think of what others will define them because they already define themselves as for the Lord.

John 1:12 “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God—”
