Con·se·cra·tion n. The act or ceremony of consecrating; the state of being consecrated; dedication.
Until the days of your consecration be at an end. --Lev. viii. 33.
Consecration makes not a place sacred, but only solemnly declares it so. --South.
n 1: a solemn commitment of your life or your time to some
cherished purpose (to a service or a goal); "his
consecration to study"
2: (religion) sanctification of something by setting it apart
(usually with religious rites) as dedicated to God; "the
Cardinal attended the consecration of the church"
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).
