Consecration Calendar – 2021

It’s that time of the year. 

While we welcome in 2021, we also welcome Consecration Month for the Church of God In Christ, taking place from Jan. 1 – 31.

The 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.”

I am the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy. – Leviticus 11:45

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!

As we participate in January’s Consecration Month, we want to remind you that you are making yourself vulnerable to the Word of God.

For 2021, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake has prepared an updated version of the Consecration Calendar, complete with new rejuvenating scripturesprayer focuses, and fasting guidelines.

Consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God – Leviticus 20:7

Below are both the Consecration Calendar and Consecration Calendar Instructions!

Today, the need for prayer and fasting is more important than ever. Our world is in a crisis: we are facing a viral epidemic, political strife, violence, injustice, immorality. If we are to hear from God, then prayer, fasting, and consecration is necessary in order to bring us closer to Him. To Pray means to speak to God; it is an act of worship.
