for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; Romans 3:23-24 NASB http://bible.com/100/rom.3.23-24.NASB
Sometimes we have to get dirty to know what dirty feels like and how it feels to come clean through all our dirtiness. Surrendering for me was when I finally got down on my hands and knees and cried out to Him telling Him I am done! I am done with this self-seeking mission of mine!
