Consecrated Life is stable form of Christian living by those faithful who feel called to follow Jesus Christ in a more exacting way recognized by the church. (see wiki's view on consecrated life)

SIGNS OF CONSECRATED LIFE



 1. Filling with spiritual gifts - Eph 4:11-12

 Verse 11 reads;

{AMP}: And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.

Verse 12 says;

{AMP}: His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church)


2. Filling with fruits of the spirit - Gal 5:22

 Verse 22 reads;

{AMP}: But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness

3. Spirit of the knowledge, wisdom and understanding - Dan 11:17 

 Verse 17 reads;

{NIV}: He will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South. And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plans will not succeed or help him.

{AMP}: He [Antiochus the Great] shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and with him upright conditions and terms of peace, and he shall perform them [by making an agreement with the king of the South].

He shall give him [his] daughter to corrupt and destroy it [his league with Egypt] and the kingdom, but it shall not succeed or be to his advantage.

6. Being used/met for the master - 2 Tim 2:21

 Verse 21 reads;

{NIV}: Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

Are you a true discipline of Jesus Christ, that has been consecrated himself/herself for God?

In other words, behavior, attitude, thought - in heart - etc, Or you have consecrated yourself for shameful work of satan.

Think over it. 

May God help you to do correction. 

Shalom.
