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.

Good but hard to follow
I really liked this book and the subject matter but it was hard to follow. The reason being was all the Scripture references. I realize in the physical book that there would be a sentence and the reference would be in parenthesis but when it is read, it breaks up the sentence.

Other than that, I thought this was an excellent book on the love of God and how even though we were enemies and dead in our sins, He chose to love us. Amazing!

Excellent Read Excellently Read
We know the gospel. We love the gospel. But, sometimes, if we are not careful, we will fail to connect the truths of the gospel to our day-to-day life. Elyse Fitzpatrick, wonderful author, speaker, and biblical counselor, offers us a sweet reminder of just how important it is to keep the gospel front and center in all that we are. Fitzpatrick offers excellent and practical counsel to us that stems from solid theology.

Perhaps my favorite thing about Fitzpatrick’s work is the way that she applies deep theology to our daily lives. For example, the author shows us how a proper grasp of the atoning work of Christ deeply impacts our motivation for obedience. Fitzpatrick shows us that, when we grasp that Christ has been punished fully for the sins of God’s children, we who know him do not have to perform some sort of penance in order to receive his approval. In another instance, Fitzpatrick shows how a focus on the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus can help us to walk through a variety of life issues.

I would highly recommend Because he Loves Me to any believer. This book has much to offer with theological depth and practical application. We all need a little more gospel in our lives, and Fitzpatrick does well to help us make that happen.

I received a free audio version of this book to review from christianaudio.com as part of their reviewers program. The narration by Renee Raudman was absolutely outstanding. She makes the book a joy to listen to with her great inflections and clarity.
