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.

Last warning . . . watch the video.

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.


  1. I think this is awesome. At the same time I was writing out truths from the Word of God, such as I am holy, ya’ll started this series. I loved Alec’s teaching on speaking God’s truth over yourself and therefore conforming your thoughts to God’s. This seems to go with that. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi! Everyone.
    How can I be part of this movement, and of what is coming in January.?
    I am originally from the Dominican Republic. First language Spanish.
    But I understand and speak English.
    My point is: I still live in Albany New York, but! I understand as well that hese qualities I describe about my self are not limitations, for me not to be involved, that I can still be part of these movement, I know and understand that God is calling out his sons and daughters for this generation.
    For such a time as these. People that would stand out for him, and the calling of Christ.
    Please I just need more information.
    Thank you.
    Be bless.

  8. I’m so thankful there is a people making this message so plain. Who look normal. You are highlighting these attributes that help daily living come alive. I wrote something this week in a text and it when something like this. I want heaven to find residency in my heart. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. It’s our will and our heart working together in unity with the Holy Spirit that brings us into the heightened state of mind. Keep it up and I will be watching and forwarding. The messages are getting clearer!!!
