Because He Loves Me: How Christ Transforms Our Daily Life
About: Because He loves Me.
God’s love has the power to change lives. Christians, then, should exhibit the greatest transformation of all because, rightly understood and cherished, God’s love makes them increasingly more like the One who has lavished his love on them.
So why do we so often struggle to exhibit God’s love? Biblical counselor Elyse M. Fitzpatrick asks one simple question: “In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?” We need to be rescued from our “identity amnesia” and pointed to our true identity as God’s beloved children—adopted by the Father, united with the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Fitzpatrick shows how a genuine transformation of identity leads to a transformation of our daily lives. Those who struggle with either legalism or lawlessness will find encouragement to return to God’s love, the source of authentic and lasting change. Study questions and invitations to further discovery conclude each chapter. Now available in paperback.
About the Author
"What Elyse Fitzpatrick has written is inspirational and overflows with practical application that pushes me to take the gospel into the otherwise private corners of my life."
Edward T. Welch, Counselor and Faculty Member, Christian Counseling & Education Foundation
"Elyse Fitzpatrick reminds us why the gospel is such good news-not only when we hear it for the first time, but even after a lifetime of familiarity with the message. This is a moving exposition of gospel truth showing how the doctrinal content of our faith is not merely dry, academic stuff, but wonderfully personal and practical truth."
Phillip R. Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You
"Because He Loves Me will provide hope and a desperately needed supply of 'spiritual oxygen' to many Christians who have lost sight of what they have and who they are in Christ and are struggling to live a life they can never live apart from him."
