Thirty years ago, I began my ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ. There, I learned about the incredible testimony of the organization’s founder, Bill Bright.

At one point, amidst marital struggles, he and his wife signed an agreement to surrender everything they have to the Lord. It was only after they came to this place of surrender that the Lord gave Bill the vision that kickstarted his ministry.

We see this concept throughout both the free and the persecuted church. Once we fall into a moment of crisis and offer ourselves fully to God, that is often when we receive His calling. So today, I encourage you to consider if there is anything you need to surrender to the Lord.
