Consecrated to God

Bishop Ryle, quoted in J. Bridges, The Pursuit of Holiness, p. 38

"I doubt, indeed, whether we have any warrant for saying that a man can possibly be converted without being consecrated to God. More consecrated he doubtless can be, and will be as his grace increases; but if he was not consecrated to God in the very day that he was converted and born again, I do not know what conversion means."
