In yesterday's readings, we heard the word "consecrate."

To consecrate is to make sacred, or to dedicate formally to a divine purpose. In our faith, we consecrate altars, churches, chalices, the Eucharist, the sacred oils, and many other things that serve as part of our worship.

Now I commend you to God and to that gracious word of his that can build you up and give you the inheritance among all who are consecrated. Acts 20:32

Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth. John 17:17

These passages don't speak of objects but of us, the people of God. You are consecrated. You are sacred. You are set apart, made holy, and dedicated to a divine purpose.

I want to show you something. Should a church be used for something besides a religious purpose? No. Can we drink coke out of a Chalice? I hope not! So if we say we are consecrated to a divine purpose, that means, we are all-in. We are wholly dedicated to the word of God and guided by the spirit of truth within us.

Being consecrated to the Lord means holding nothing back from Him. We are His, wholly.
