Exposed – What’s Under Your Mask?

“Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour when everyone has thrown off his mask? Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked? Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it? – Soren Kierkegaard

What’s Under Your Mask?

Masks - Famous Movies

Today I’m kicking off a mini-series called “Masks” – The Things We Hide Behind. With Halloween coming many of us will be wearing masks or costumes – and for most people it’s a ton of fun. For one night – you get to pretend to be something your really aren’t.

However – for many people Halloween isn’t the only day we put on masks. For many people putting on a mask is a regular part of your morning ritual…

Eat breakfast – Brush your teeth

Do your hair – Grab your backpack

But before you walk out that door…

You put on that mask and head to school or work or wherever you go.

And all day long – you will wear a mask to cover up certain parts of you that you don’t want anybody to see. We do that to hide from ourselves, from God, and especially from other people. In a sense Everyday is Halloween. So over the next few days I am going to offer you three things you need to do to get past the fear of taking off your mask.
