Consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God – Leviticus 20:7
January is Consecration Month for the Church of God In Christ. To consecrate means “to declare” or “to set apart; to be removed from.” In some definitions, the word consecrate means “to hallow” or “to make vulnerable.” In the above scripture, God is telling us that if we declare or set ourselves apart from the world and dedicate ourselves to a sacred purpose, then there is no way we cannot be holy in pleasing God…for He is holy (Leviticus 11:45).
PREPARING THE WAY OF THE LORD
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. presents to the Church of God In Christ our theme and focus for 2017:
“IN THIS CHANGING WORLD, LET US HOLD ON TO OUR UNCHANGING FAITH”
Colossians 1:9-23, Jude 3-4, 2 Timothy 3:1-17, 1 Corinthians 15:58.
