           cherished purpose (to a service or a goal); "his

      2: (religion) sanctification of something by setting it apart
         (usually with religious rites) as dedicated to God; "the

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the devoting or setting apart of anything to the worship or
    service of God. The race of Abraham and the tribe of Levi were
    thus consecrated (Ex. 13:2, 12, 15; Num. 3:12). The Hebrews
    devoted their fields and cattle, and sometimes the spoils of
    war, to the Lord (Lev. 27:28, 29). According to the Mosaic law
    the first-born both of man and beast were consecrated to God.
      In the New Testament, Christians are regarded as consecrated
    to the Lord (1 Pet. 2:9).
