LIVE A LIFE OF CONSECRATION
MAIN TEXT: Romans 6:13 – Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
Romans 12:1- I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Consecration means “the separation of oneself from things that are unclean, and anything that would contaminate one’s relationship with a perfect God.” Consecration also means sanctification, holiness, or purity.
Jesus Christ preached the doctrine of consecration throughout His ministry. All that we own and all our relationships are to be consecrated to God so that they do not become idols in our lives. No thing or person is to be held above our relationship with Jesus Christ.
The grace of consecration makes us “to be like him” (1 John 3:2), to participate in His holiness, and His Divine Nature.
A CONSECRATED CHRISTIAN LIFE IS THE VICTORY LIFE IN CHRIST
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, set me apart for the glorious work of God’s kingdom. Let my heart be a holy ground for my God in Jesus name, Amen.
