Pride is the lock on the human heart. Humility is the key. Imagine the inner workings of a lock fashioned with two concentric cylinders that are held together by four spring-loaded pins. The inner cylinder represents our spiritual heart.
A key is the perfect combination for each respective lock. It pushes up the spring-loaded pins high enough so that the innermost cylinder can turn freely inside the outermost cylinder, unlocking the door. Partially surrendering the key into the lock will never open any door. Only fully surrendering the key will unlock it.
The same is true for our lives. God told the Prophet Jeremiah that partial surrender is only pretense (Jeremiah 3:10). In order to be restored to authenticity, we must fully surrender our hearts to the Restorer, Jesus Christ who holds the Master Key.
