Mustaches, Fig Leaves, and Instagram: How Jesus Sets us Free to Be Ourselves
We all have ways we try to present ourselves to the world. We use our clothes, hair, social media, and countless other things to present the best version of ourselves to the world. These presentations are often ways of hiding our fears, our insecurities, and our vulnerability, when what we long for is someone to embrace us for who we are. That is what Jesus offers us: an identity that frees us to be ourselves.
