If you choose to consecrate yourself to God, you should expect two things. First, you should expect explosive life and joy and in the Lord. Second, you should resign yourself to follow God regardless of what you suffer.
Obedience is key. The Old Testament is full of examples of people who said, “I will do whatever God asks,” and then they didn’t. Or, they said they would serve God–with conditions. This is the opposite of consecration, and if persisted in, will snuff out your spiritual life.
Are you following Jesus with full-hearted joy?
