Consecration is not necessarily dislocation

Consecration is not necessarily dislocation. God's plan for a man's life does not of necessity lift him out from his present realm of life and surrounding. It is not a new sphere God is seeking. It is a new man in the present sphere! It is not transference. It is transformation. The trouble is not usually with the place. It is with the man in the place. Consecration means living for God and His kingdom, many times right where you are, instead of living for self. The golden chain of God's great purpose for your life and mine is woven of the single links which we lay hold of, one at a time, along the pathway of daily opportunity.
