THE POWER OF CONSECRATION
MAIN TEXT: 1 KINGS 9:3 – The Lord said to him:I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
Romans 6:12 – Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
The dictionary religiously described consecration as officially making a thing, a place or a person holy. Every Christian especially born again Christians are should live a life of holiness because it attracts the Holy Spirit to the believer.In 1 Peter 1:16, the scripture said, ” Be ye holy for I am holy”.
In 1 Kings 8:63, King Solomon built a temple and with all the people of Israel, dedicated it unto God.
God accepted and consecrated the temple with a promise to answer all the prayers made to Him from that temple if he will honestly obey all his commandments as his father; David. On the contrary, God said, if the Israelites disobeyed his commandments, he would abandon the temple and the Israelites.
In other words, unholiness defiles holy living. It defiles the consecration of any place, thing or any person.
Child of God, be warned. Samson remained strong and powerful until he lusted after the strange evil woman called Delilah which ruined his life and got him blind. Judges 16:30. May the Holy Spirit guide you to a life of obedience and holiness.
