Book Summary of You Can Change by Tim Chester


Every Christian knows what it’s like to struggle with ongoing patterns and habits of sin. Even after a sinner trusts in Jesus for salvation, they continue to struggle against old ways of living and indwelling sin. This struggle can be extremely discouraging.

A multitude of books have been written to answer the question of how Christians actually go about the process of the change we know as sanctification. This particular book “was written out of my own struggle to change. My long battle with particular problems set me searching the Scriptures as well as writings from the past. This book shares wonderful truths I discovered that now give me hope” (p. 9).

Hope is a beautiful thing. Hope is something that can sustain a discouraged Christian who is struggling to change their sinful habits. In the end, this sustaining, strengthening hope will never be found in rules, systems, or techniques. It can only be found in Jesus. “We’re not changed by systems or rules. We need a Redeemer to set us free, and we have a great Redeemer in Jesus.” (p. 9)

Putting Jesus at the center of our efforts to change reminds us that we turn from sin to a greater joy. This is good news because Jesus is “bigger and better than anything sin offers” (p. 10).
