Bible Term: Consecrate

To consecrate is to set apart, to declare as sacred or holy, or to dedicate to God for service.

In the Old Testament of the Bible, items used for the worship of God or in service to him, were consecrated for that purpose.

In the New Testament of the Bible, all who follow Jesus are automatically consecrated.

Consecrate is a synonym for sanctify.
