Because He Loves Me: How Christ Transforms Our Daily Life by Elyse M. FitzpatrickGods love has the power to change lives. Christians, then, should exhibit the greatest transformation of all because, rightly understood and cherished, Gods love makes them increasingly more like the One who has lavished his love on them.
So why do we so often struggle to exhibit Gods 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 Gods 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 Gods love, the source of authentic and lasting change. Study questions and invitations to further discovery conclude each chapter. Now available in paperback.

Simply speaking, love changes people. Christians, then, by definition, 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. This truth is meant to tell believers who they are, their purpose and destiny, and how to faithfully persevere in their struggles against all opposition. But sometimes people lose sight of this. Because He Loves Me restores that vision, reminding Christians of their true identity as beloved children of God—adopted by the Father, espoused to the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not a self-improvement program but a transferring of identity and growth, accomplished in history through Christ and in our daily lives through his Spirit.

One of the most often asked for books in the ministry of the church is a good book on parenting. With that in mind I wanted to highlight two books by Elyse Fitzpatrick who writes to underscore the centrality of the gospel for women who desire to grow in the grace of Christ in Because He Loves Me and for parents who desire to train their children in the disciplines of grace in Give Them Grace. Fitzpatrick acknowledges that she was guilty of assuming the gospel in many of her previous counseling and parenting books. That is, she acknowledged the gospel in salvation, but assumed the gospel in Christian living. The author admits that she had defaulted into a moralistic, performance-based legalism devoid of the power of the cross. Yet, it is this reality of personal conviction that sets a beautiful context for the material for these books.
