This is the second 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 is what the I Am Series is all about. 

Take a second to watch the video. Then proceed.

— 

For God made the only one who did not know sin to become sin for us, so that we who did not know righteousness might become the righteousness of God through our union with him. 2 Corinthians 5V21 TPT

You guys, the righteousness of God is part of your identity in Christ. Another piece to this unending gift that became ours at Calvary.

Jesus’s blood has given you new life, so you BELONG in the family of God. And because you are found within, you can fight for those without. Because you’re found in Him, you can live free from the tyranny of self-centeredness. It’s in the beauty of selflessness that you find the desire to lay down your life, look up, and follow in the footsteps of your Older Brother—the only Person who could exchange our filth for the beautiful freedom of righteousness. 

It is through this union with Christ that we discover what it means to be righteous. That is why we should reject the hustle to prove our worthiness and instead humbly receive HIS perfect righteousness. It’s in this exchange that we find the power and perspective to become the hands and feet of God—vessels of “thy kingdom come, thy will be done ON EARTH as it is in heaven.” 

You are righteous, so you fight for justice.

    I am declared righteous! Praise God for the finished work of Jesus on the cross not I am righteous. Thanks for the message.

  2. I am so excited to hear you Julianna speak. You are amazing! 🙂
    I think you have big anointing and wisdom.
    I like to hear how do you manage your days with kids (time-management)
    Do you have time for yourself, to pray, Bible study, or it means that to be a mum is a busy season?

  3. Every time I hear you speak, I see the tender compassion of the Lord which is so beautiful to behold. Thank you for diligently seeking Him out and sharing with the grace of royalty. May you be blessed, consistently, with discovering the unending wonder and beauty of our God.

  4. I am righteous so I fight for justice!

  5. Thank you Julie, this was simply powerful. I think I might need to listen to it a few times to grasp more and more…. this is a great project of S&D.
