The word "consecration" is usually linked to the idea of devotion, sanctification, obedience. In a passage in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 354) Mrs. Eddy unites the phrase "a life consecrated" with "grace, a motive made pure, a few truths tenderly told, a heart softened, a character subdued." All of these states of thought reflect Truth and Love, and they appear in proportion as one's consciousness is permeated with the truth and is at one with divine Love. Such a consciousness is immune from discordant, erroneous thoughts, thoughts of fear and doubt. At one with divine Love, that consciousness naturally expresses assurance, unselfishness, obedience.

As we consecrate ourselves to the truth, we are laying up "treasures in heaven, ... where thieves do not break through nor steal." Only as we consecrate our lives to God do we feel that we are ready to work in that highly important vineyard, the Christian Science church, including the Sunday school.
