Erwin McManus points out that often the Christian emphasis on grace can lead believers into a position of apathy. The reality, however, is that scripture places commands on and assigns responsibility to believers. McManus says that in seminary he learned that Jesus is supposed to fix some small things in peoples lives and that psychotherapy should take care of the rest, and he describes meeting countless people during his years as a pastor who have changed what they believe, but whose lives have remained unchanged. Against these troubling tendencies, McManus offers two overlooked Christian practices that can lead to real change in one’s life.
