With Halloween coming up, I only find it fitting to talk briefly about identity. Halloween is the day most children dress up in their costume of choice and parade around collecting as much candy as possible. The only problem is, this is the one time of year children get a new identity, yet most children never take on the character of who they are portraying.
I find this happens a lot with me throughout the day. I am the daughter of the king, but where is my crown? Most of us desire something tangible to wear on the outside so we remember who we are. But like children dressed in their costumes on Halloween, the most obvious display of change, still doesn't change them on the inside to believe and remember who they are.
We don't need to wear badges, or have a new outfit to fix the loss of our true identity. We need to fight our persistent flesh that wants to display our old identity. And wake up every morning hiding our flesh and reminding ourselves of who Christ says we are. Our identity is found in Christ and true transformation starts on the inside, not the outside display.
Pastors' wives, your identity isn't found in your calling. Being a pastor's wife doesn't define you, nor will it sustain you. Drop the costume (flesh), remember who you are, and your purpose for each day God has called you to.
