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. The very word 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 essentially telling the reader that if you declare or set yourself apart from the world and dedicate yourself to a sacred purpose; if you irrevocably devote yourself to Him, there is no way you cannot be holy in pleasing God…for He is holy! (Leviticus 11:45).
As we prepare for Consecration, let us remember that we are making ourselves vulnerable to the Word of God. Fantastic guidelines to live by, wouldn’t you agree?
For 2016, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake has prepared an updated version of the Consecration Calendar, complete with new rejuvenating scriptures, prayer focuses, and fasting guidelines.

Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake has shared with us the theme for 2016 for The Church of God In Christ:
“Fighting for Salvation and Righteousness in a Violent and Immoral World.” 1 Timothy 6:12 – Fight the good fight of faith; lay hold of eternal life.
Please join us as we pray for peace, and for the manifestation of the Kingdom of God.
