XII. The Consecration of the Personality. “Take me and I will be ever only all for Thee. ”
All our powers are dedicated to God and the life-bearing marks of this complete consecration to God. In this connection, we think of Paul when he said: “I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. ” The seal of God is on the wholly consecrated. Life manifests it, the deportment shows it. With this wholehearted dedication to God, there will be a transformation and there will be a constant renunciation and repudiation of worldly standards, fashions and laws. The wholly consecrated person is truly a nonconformist. There is a refusal to conform to this world. A full and complete consecration results eventually in the soul’s sanctification and improvement. Let it be remembered that consecration is objective — “That ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2). “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
