HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

Consecration does not mean the giving up of our sins or vices or depraved appetites, or forbidden indulgences; these things we renounce, cut out and abjure. It is that state in which all our ransomed powers are devoted, dedicated, and consecrated to God. The language of consecration is thus put by a certain writer: “I am willing

  • To receive what Thou givest;
  • To lack what Thou with holdest;
  • To relinquish what Thou takest;
  • To suffer what Thou inflictest;
  • To be what Thou requirest;
  • To do what Thou commandest. 

Consecration

Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”

The Language of Consecration — “I beseech you.”
The Subjects of Consecration — “Brethren”
The Motive of Consecration — “Mercies of God”
The Area of Consecration — “Your bodies”
The Quality of Consecration — “Living sacrifice”
The Sanity of Consecration — “Reasonable service”

The Object of Consecration — “May Prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. “
