INTRODUCTION: The word consecration can be defined as the act of separating ourselves from things and associations that can affect our relationship with God and dedicating ourselves to God and His kingdom. Joshua told the children of Israel to consecrate themselves for God to do wonders in their midst. Joshua 3:5
Things we should consecrate includes: friends, businesses, fun activities,

The process of consecration can be seen as the human side of sanctification, whereas God sanctifies us through His word, we consecrate ourselves unto God. Our memory verse is a call to consecration.
