(kŏn″sĭ-krā′shən) n.1:dedication to a sacred purpose
It is the common things in life — not, as we sometimes think, the exceptional things — that offer us greatest opportunity to live a consecrated life.
What Does It Mean to Be Consecrated Anyway?
Blessed, made holy, made sacred; dedicated to God, devoted, reserved, set apart; anointed, ordained.
Zechariah foresaw the day when our dear Lord is satisfied in His people and rejoices over them, and he said:
“In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO The LORD; and the pots in The LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto The LORD of Hosts.” Zechariah 14:20-21.
The great thing is to live in the spirit of “holiness unto The LORD” in all our common things.
Is all holy in my heart?
Is all that issues forth in words and deeds stamped with the hallmark of holiness?
Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts.
Lead me, even me, in the way of holiness, that my life today may truly be a consecrated life.
In His Shadow,
