Part 7 of “The Rivah” A Series on Rivers in the Bible by Rev. Dr. Robert Lee “Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you’” (Joshua 3:5, NIV). Definition: To consecrate is “to be holy, to be dedicated, to be set apart, to be pure.” Why should we be holy? 1. Because it is a COMMAND -- “. . . so be holy in all you do” (1 Peter 1:15). 2. Because of the PERSON of God -- “Be holy because I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16). 3. Because we are DIFFERENT -- “. . . live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear” (1 Peter 1:17b). 4. Because of the COST -- “. . . you were redeemed from the empty way of life . . . [by] the precious blood of Christ” (1 Peter 1:18-19). How are we to be Holy? 1. Prepare your minds -- (1 Peter 1:13). 2. Guard your heart -- (Proverbs 4:23).
