In any journey towards renewal, we have to, in fact, journey. We have to put one step in front of the other towards life change. God and others can intervene in our life, providing the opportunity for change, but we have a responsibility. Wesley theologian, Randy Maddox, speaks of this as God’s grace that is “response-able”–that is to say a grace that allows us the ability to respond, but we must never forget the need for our actions. God saves us by grace and God calls us to participate with the renewal that is taking place in us and in the world around us.
