This is the first part of the I Am Series.
Our world is desperate for God’s Sons & Daughters to discover who we truly are. It’s not enough for us to just say we’re Sons & Daughters . . . we need to wrestle with what it actually means to be the children of God. And that, my friends, is what the I Am Series is all about.
The amazing truth is that our Heavenly Father has invited us into a higher way of Being. A new way to be human, if you will. A life that stretches beyond the confines of truncated religion and sterile sentiments.
In our world—and even within the “Christian” world—there’s so much confusion around being, purpose, belonging, etc. All of us sense that there’s something more than what we’ve known, and we’re struggling to find answers with substance.
And here’s the truth: THERE IS MORE! In fact, Scripture tells us that eternity was written on our hearts. There’s an expansiveness in us that requires us to move beyond secondhand information and superficial answers.
Together, we can reject the notion that to be a child of God is a bland, boring assignment. We can become people who defy limitation, and who, by the power of God’s Spirit, step into the fullness of God’s design for our humanity.
This is the life we were created to know. This is living. Anything else is mere existence.
Fellow Sons & Daughters, there’s a higher way of Being. It’s time for us to take the leap.

Okay, to recap, the first I Am statement is: I am holy, so I stand out from the crowd.
Is it clear that holiness is so much more than “following the rules”? Holiness is the journey into everything our Father has for us. A journey into the beauty, wonder, and majesty of what it is to be a child of God and share His nature. Ultimately, our holiness is a byproduct of God’s holiness. And because of His Spirit and grace, we can be holy—in thought, word, and deed.
To be holy is to be whole. To be holy is to be His.
The wonder of holiness and its implications for our lives is a passion of mine, so I’ll unpack this more in the months and years ahead. My challenge for you today is to read 2 Corinthians 6 & 7 and ask God’s Spirit to reveal what holiness looks like in your life.
You are holy, so you stand out from the crowd.
