There are great men of the Bible the Lord places before us as examples of human frailty and divine grace. Men such as Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Job and Daniel fill the pages of the Old Testament. And then there are our New Testament heroes, Peter, James, John, Paul, and Stephen, among others. Church history is also littered with men who forsook this life for the life to come. Men “of whom the world was not worthy” (Heb. 11:38).
But what characteristic or spiritual trait runs through each of these men? Was it human ability or ingenuity? Was it their upbringing and privileged background? Maybe it was their education, family status, financial security, political position, or something like that? No. Each of these men possessed only one characteristic that allowed God to use them like He did. And that one characteristic is being totally, fully, surrendered to Him.
