Commentary:

It must be eaten on the same day...
  See Leviticus 7:15.

Do not desecrate
  This is a specific commandment not to do anything to give God or His Torah a bad name (Sefer HaMitzvoth, Negative 63).

I must be sanctified
  This is the commandment of kiddush ha-Shem, to enhance the reputation of God and His Torah (Sefer HaMitzvoth, Positive 9).
