Because He Loves Me: How Christ Transforms Our Daily Life | [Elyse M. Fitzpatrick]

Because He Loves Me: How Christ Transforms Our Daily Life

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?"

Publisher's Summary

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.

    I am a Christian wife and mother. I write two blogs. My somewhat theological blog is called "Just Another Clay Pot," and my Fiction/Poetry blog is called "Weightiness and Whimsy."

    "Recommended for those recovering from Pharisaism"

    I was tempted to say that Elyse Fitzpatrick is trying to "bridge the gap" between faith and works, but of course that would be terribly inaccurate. What she is doing is showing that the gap doesn't exist, and only our misunderstanding of the Gospel creates a chasm.

    She does an excellent job of showing how the only true good works are those born of "faith working through love" as the Bible says. She hammers home the truth of God's Love in its rich fullness...not the bubble-gum love of the so-called "prosperity preachers," but the real Gospel love that transforms lives. She helps the reader rest in God's love, not as a place of self-indulgence, but as a base for godly living.

    The narrator does a very good job with the text. My definition of good narratior is that she helps the listener immerse herself in the text, without calling attention to herself in the process. Raudman accomplished that at least 90% of the time.

    "Excellent!!!"

    Brilliant book on the gospel! Even though I have been a Christian for many years I have never truly understood the immense implications of the gospel in the Christian life. I have never really understood what we have and who we are in Christ! This is the first gospel centred book I have listened to (and read it twice already). After this book I have read Tim Keller's Study of the Letter to Galatians (by the way, it was recommended in this book) and got even deeper understanding of the precious gospel of Jesus Christ! Before I got to know the gospel I had been living a performance centred life. What a bondage that was. I don't want to ever come back to that kind of life! I pray for every listener (and reader) of this book to really grasp the gospel, start living in it every day and share it with others!
