Consecration

When we describe the word ‘Consecration’ it can have a dual meaning:

Consecration as it relates to the Holy Eucharist (Mass); the elements of bread and grape juice are transformed into the Precious Body and Precious Blood of Jesus also known as transubstantiation.

In Matthew, Chapter 8, we revisit the scene of the centurion asking for assistance for one who is ill, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the work and my servant will be healed.”

Consecration can also relate to worthiness. Am I worthy in God’s eyes? Yes!

I have incorporated the following text into my own “Breaking Bread” format and have shared with others:

 “Lord, I Am worthy to receive You. When You speak the Word and breathe upon me, I AM Healed.”

“I Pray that this Body and this Blood will bring me to Eternal Life, Joy, Hope, Peace, Understanding, Faith, Freedom, Healing and God’s Truth, Amen!”

However we consecrate ourselves to God; whether during prayer or partaking in communion, we are worthy to receive all He has in store for us, due to His Love for us.

“Consecration is the act of continually separating myself from everything, except that which God has appointed me to do.  It is not a one-time experience but an ongoing process.” (Utmost)
