Show Notes

Leviticus 20:7, “Consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God.” In the Bible the word consecration means “the separation of oneself from things that are unclean, especially anything that would contaminate one’s relationship with a perfect God.” Consecration also carries the connotation of sanctification, holiness, or purity. Note that God says that we are to be consecrated because He is holy.

 

The importance of being consecrated or pure in our relationship with God is explored through the stories of the patriarch, Joshua crossing the Jordan and King David taking responsibility for his sins of adultery and murder. Additional scriptures referenced include Joshua 3:5; Joshua 1:11; Joshua 2; Exodus 19:14-15; Psalm 51; Psalm 77:13-14; 2 Samuel 12:15-20; 2 Samuel 22:21; Psalm 24:3-4; Leviticus 14:1-7, 33-53; Exodus 12:22; John 19:28-30; 2 Corinthians 6:17; Romans 12:1-2; and 1 Peter 2:9-10.
