You Can Change

God's transforming power for our sinful behaviour and negative emotions

Tim Chester


‘Many books are written by experts. This book isn’t one of them,’ admits Tim Chester. ‘It was written out of my own struggle to change. My long battle with particular issues set me searching the Bible as well as writings from the past. This book shares the amazing truths I discovered that now give me hope.’

‘For years I wondered if I’d ever overcome certain sins. And while I can’t claim to have conquered sin – for no one ever can do – here are discoveries that have led to change in my life and in the lives of others.’

You may be:

  • a new Christian, struggling to change the habits of your former way of life
  • an older Christian, feeling you’ve plateaued: you grew quickly when you first believed but now your Christian life is much of a muchness
  • a Christian who’s fallen into sin in a big way, wondering how you’ll ever get back on track

Other books describe how we should live, but this book outlines how we can change. It’s about hope: the hope we have in Jesus, hope for forgiveness, and hope for real and lasting change. God promises liberating grace and transforming power to his people.

You Can Change

I loved this book. Chester deals helpfully and biblically with the topic of progressive sanctification. He encourages you to take one particular sinful habit or emotion and prayerfully work through the book with this sin in mind. At the start of the book he says “you will cleanse no sin from your life that you have not first recognised as being pardoned through the cross”, and this is truly the thrust of the book. We must see ourselves as forgiven, made new and set free in Christ and then we can see our sin through a gospel lens as we grow in holiness by God’s grace. One of my favourite things Chester says of sanctification is that “there’s something inevitable about it, because it’s God’s work and God always succeeds”. I found this book so encouraging and I saw a change in my behaviour and the counsel I give as a result of reading ‘You Can Change’.
