Consecration

Consecration

I dedicated my son to the Lord and promised to raise him as a Christian. Since my husband wasn’t attending church at that point, my son’s consecration was my personal prayer and commitment to God.

Calling. . .

Dedicate to me all the firstborn sons. . .

(Exodus 13:22; Luke 2:22)

Dedication. . .

Consecration is the act of “setting apart” to the Lord. I think many parents miss the Bible’s call for consecration, which allows our young children to receive God’s blessing. Consecration through infant dedication is not an act of salvation for the child (only a believer can be baptized and saved as a Christian), it’s an act of faith by the parent. The Bible clearly gives us a mechanism for blessing our children at infancy. In fact, as parent’s, we have an obligation to bring our first-born son before the Lord. It is a symbolic offering of “first fruits” to God, an act of faith and commitment by the parents, which, in turn, provides God’s blessing for the child.

Letter to God. . .

Dear Lord,
Thank You for Randy.
Through my love for him,
I know how much You love me.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
